If given normal circumstances,

I order a
with-a-stir-stick latte.

the mere fact

that you
walk past/casually flip your hair/and sit in front
of my drooling figure/while you chew on your pen cap and/tap
your shoe and/altogether/exist in general,
is like 300 volts
to the cranium,
plus a shot of espresso and I thought

you should know that
(and you saved me $4.30 + tax at Starbucks).

I disagree with the_Horsegirl-- one of my favorite poets is Emily Dickinson, and she used random dashes. To this day no one knows why. I think it's a staple, to do something different with your poetry.

I loved the idea and the way you carried it out. Bravo!

Very creative! I really like the begining and end, but I'm not a huge fan of all the random slash/marks. I don't really understand why they're there.
