Hold On

Stop me if I’ve told you this before— 

Whatever you do, don’t do it 
In the spirit of one sentenced 
To listen to friends pretending

He’s interested though we know 
The minute they start talking, 
He’s miles out the door. 


  1. Stop me, before I go on. I once wrote a short story called Hold On for Quadrant, and it jumped out at me as I read these words. Thanks Vassilis.

  2. My pleasure, Elisabeth; you might also like to know that this little poem is a self-portrait of the artist as indifferent individual--one of my more bothersome traits I have yet to quash.
