A WAVE CANNOT BE A WAVE

A wave cannot be a wave
without going
both up and down. . .

a smile cannot be a smile
without the possibility
of an expressionless level lip-mile
or a frown
curving oh so far down
it drags the brow into a furl. . .

there cannot be
the creature that they call a boy
without the one
they call a girl. . .
