"Poetry is meant to be read aloud"
I can't remember where I read this but it is the truth of the matter.


In the interest of clarity
and soul searching
or purging
introspection is deemed
ineffective.

Brain matter and activity
is scientific,
a subject of study
and inquiry,
not emotional insignificance.

Rattled and unsteady
the inner ear controls balance
and the outer mask,
the perceptions
but both can be thrown off.

In swells and torrents
secrets are cast off
and the inner eye is sunk,
water enveloping all that
was once individual and private.

Marble erodes slowly,
but its cracks run through
it is a matter of finding the weak vein,
the breaking point.
