dirt on the welcome mat

Stuff your speech,

Shiny wrapper and all,

Into your own mouth

And chew until your teeth

Gleam with the shreds,

Spread your options

As thin as the ones you’ve

Laid out,

Ball them up and

See if,

Squeezed between your fingers,

They relieve any stress.

letter or
speech, he
sculpted or
shaved, paved in
smooth sound
a walkway
to
ground so
endless, far
and fragile that
it caressed
silence it
is poetry


disconnected

ineffective

hard

words like marbles

multiply, fill up his cheeks

until red-faced,

he swallows one

and realizes

his mistake.
