The Long Speech


A thousand words in my stomach
The utterances
All my speeches
Rolling and turning in my stomach
A million words in my belly
The pieces and bits
Silent thoughts hidden in my body
My blank eyes
My indifference
My face rarely lit
Your ears
Your hunger
I’m not gonna feed

The Flee


I cupped a petal
The Witch smirked
I picked up a pigeon
The Monster growled
My friends told me to break free
I turned and ran until I reached the sea
My friends said ignorance is bliss
My heart swayed
My eyes looked back
The last thing I saw
Was sharp claws and teeth
