Variations on a Theme

Word Application (1)
I need a word application
I need to apply words

to apply my words
to apply for a job
to apply my make-up

I need to apply to apply
just try to fly
fax apps go floating by

amicably applicable to things I do or say
File save
undo, redo
do what you need
to apply

Word Application (2)
I love that phrase
I read it again and again
and smile
It does back flips in my mind
recalling images of doc’s
or pdf’s
but look again and we see the command staring at us with eyes like Medusa

“Apply words!”  it screams
I try to look away, to think about
something else.
I try to imagine “words” to be like a lotion of some sort.

People in bikinis on beaches under umbrellas
rubbing it into each other
but then I picture the word “hard”
being rubbed in
would it hurt?
what about the word “hurt”
how about the word “knot”would it give your muscles knots when the word is meant for the fastening of cord

word application
the application of words
how words apply

I read an article that said,
man never walked on the moon
that’s what it said
“man never walked on the moon”
well of course not,
I’ve never walked on the moon, I’m pretty sure that you’ve never walked on the moon
In fact, 99.99999999% of the population has never walked on the moon
Math teaches us that .99 repeating is equal to 1
so mathematically 100% of the population has not walked on the moon
Man has never walked on the moon

Word application, how to apply words
