SPEAK TIGHT

Speak tight along a track
roll the jive gone by
turned with years, pages folded
collapsed but still alive
to motivate, lift against new odds
sort the attic for clippings saved
collate memory files
jot again the words to say
response in cases pro or con
yet only choose the adverbs
sparingly safe, carefully on.
