Back to Basics

April Poem-A-Day 21 – Back to Basics

Back to basics
when two and two made four
without too much complication
or small print
outside printable area;

when no one signed contracts
over the phone
to learn a week later
that their ‘Yes, mail me the offer.’
was interpreted as a ‘Yes.’ only;

Back to the time
when the streets were empty of cars
and mainly served as the topic
of romantic city poems.
