28PA:  I Want

I Want

I want like a sparrow,
a sea gull. I want like
a buzzard, a bluebird,
a wren. I wish like a candle;
hope like an angel; desire–
devilishly hard. I would
that I could like a devotee.
I would make it so–like
Picard. I fancy, amateurishly.
In a word: I’d prefer. I covet.
I hanker. I lust. I yearn.
I long, aspire, ache, incline.
It isn’t a matter of what–
but of mine.
