Lines

Draw a line. Write a line. There.
Stay in line, hold the line, a glance
Between the lines is fine but don’t
Turn corners, cross, cut in, go over
Or out, between two points of no
Return’s a line of flight, between
Two points of view’s a line of vision.
But a line of thought is rarely
Straight, an open line’s no party
Line, however fine your point.
A line of fire communicates, but drop
Your weapons and drop your line,
Consider the shortest distance from x
To y, let x be me, let y be you.
