Kidnap Poem

ever been kidnapped
by a poet
i'd kidnap you
put you in my phrases and meter
you to jones beach
or maybe coney island
or maybe just my house
lyric you in lilacs
dash you in the rain
blend into the beach

anything to win you
wrap you in red Black green
show you off
yeah if i were a poet i'd kid
nap you
