quietly loud

for + after Alexander Supertramp

i took a vow of silence
and it nearly killed me
not because i’m such a motormouth
i need to talk,
but also because
i need to talk

i need to talk
with people
because people
is where it’s at

the vow lasted lasted
all of about
fifteen minutes
and i was so loudly quiet
my lover could hear me
in the next room,
the pain of grief
reverberating
in her deeply empathic soul

i took a vow of silence
and it nearly killed me
because i’m such a motormouth
i need to hear
but also
talk

so talk,
damnit!
