Too Much, Too Much

You’re willing – more than willing – to say why –
indeed you’re spilling with the impulse to regale –
but loving someone won’t admit of explanation –

itemizing pluses on a chart imparts a mere pale
simulacrum of the thing about which, well, you
might much better sing a nonsense song, not

long, but long enough to push you gently into
the availingly oblique: distract you from the task
of answering what is too much, too much to ask.
