no more (Words)

You do not hear me
and I have
no more words for you


am left aside like the leavings of supper
bits of Caesar salad and mashed potatoes

I bragged
I boasted
I was so sure
my words were the cure
I could form them
into what shape would help us
(and) my failure is bitter

The tirade
a stream of negotiation
flowing through us
as storms slammed again and again
like tides

There are no more words
the abuses too fine
The cruelties too keen

let the gutters fill up
don’t empty them of leaves
(I have)
no more words

One thought on “no more (Words)

Give me your two cents
