Hustling Words

I met you when the world had turned sour

We exchanged alien goodbyes
 in the government domain where we worked

I found you again
 between fiends and slaves.

We talked beyond the party
 beyond the cusp of sleep

I invited you to the river
 you preferred to wait for rain

We kissed when the world was blind
 before we started hustling words.
