Maybe I won't even write it down

I'll just stuff it in between this space of words, this quiet gap between what I heard and what you thought

a line or two, three or four, maybe a few more, bent tight with rhyme, or maybe not, a gift-bow tied at the top with a knot

this poem, I offer, is all I've got
