Let’s Talk (Daniel J. Barbeau)

Let’s Talk.

by Daniel J. Barbeau

Let’s skip over the elements
the wind and rain
the thunder and lightning
that can move me so
let’s skip over love
the exultation
the pain of it
let’s skip over night
the bars and brawls
the sex
let’s skip over regret
the sorrow and remorse
the wishing things had turned out differently
let’s skip over fear
ever present in this temple
let’s skip over prayer
all the good it’s done us
let’s skip over loss
for once
let’s skip over poetry
just for today

“Let’s Talk.,” by Daniel J. Barbeau originally published in City Scriptum ([Forum] 1993, City College of San Francisco).
