If I were more lighthearted... by CraziCreek If I were more lighthearted... by CraziCreek
this collage was created as a response to a poem my friend wrote. here is the poem in its entirety.

flirtation

if i were more lighthearted i would flirt with everything
i would flirt with the elevator
twirling in that stale box
pushing and lighting the buttons
just to see where they took me

i would flirt with the venetian blinds
flipping them open to let the sun
wash over me in zebra stripes
yes, then i'd flirt with the sun

i would flirt with the shower
gargling the water to no particular purpose

if i were more lighthearted i would have lit up
when those girls flirted with me yesterday
instead i just smiled and my arms hung at my sides
like funny sticks

"playing is learning" is only partially true
if i were more lighthearted i would say
"playing is just playing" and i would flirt with everything
