we know full well

there is no knock behind this morning wood
 1
 
 
only peeled wafer by shaved paper
 2
did we construct these uncrossed hearts
 3
 
 
and upon these hearts unlucky vowed
 4
throw-down leaf by fall-apart lace
 5
at our one allowed unraveling pace
 6
to hope to die and die fragile
 7
 
 
with fragile hung on tenterhooks
 8
of my timid maybes and your feeble what-ifs
 9
(despite many so-not-true mines
 10
and come-what-may yours)
 11
 
 
there could never be knock
 12
beyond these woods
 13
   all tender tinder
 14
 
 
only damprot smell
 15

too e.e. cummings huh?

Thanks, I only had the first line in my head when I sat to write it.  But yiiiaa.. I guess I'll have to call it a tribute/exercise then and just leave it at that heh.
