disuse (20170708)

a vomitus of words erupted

from your throat
got caught in your teeth
stained your shirt

so many words
at once you couldn’t hear
what i was trying
to say

i wiped away
the recriminations
the explanations
the assassinations
and found you

had no ears
they had grown over
with a thick skin

unused for so long

  1. It’s always unfortunate when body parts aren’t used to their utmost potential. 😦 Thank you for drawing attention to this tragedy in such a sublime way.
