i’ve just ten lines to show you a world

to bring you new colors from once-hidden objects
to offer my heart and try to win yours over
to entice the formation of new neural pathways
to bring you to the verge of tears
to moisten your lips in anticipation
to carve a statue that moves only when you close your eyes
and the punchline is that there are never enough lines
even if i cheat and loop-de-loop this poem’s end
right back around to its quite obvious title
i’ve just ten lines to show you a world
