I don't write poetry, I speak it

August 8, 2011
My languish tongue
seems able to write
what my pen finds in short stock
for from it drips words of honey
that twirls warm like a cacophony
of caramel syrup in a stirring pot

but take that down to pen
with its drying up ink spots -
it breaks.
the caramel so fragile, so lucid -

And I’m left with a few words
I can’t remember,
a thought undone,
and a voice,
an opinion, unheard.
