To pluck out the sentence
From the very top of the heap,
And dedicate it to you
With a hopeful question mark
Invisibly attached.
And to wait.

Monosyllabic politeness.
Or silence.
On this side of the chasm,
A paper balloon crumples
Under the weight of sudden
Foolishness.

I like the first verse more too. But it's all good. In a way.
