See & Say

It’s easy to sit

sit and see and say

like a toy with a string

wandering in circles.


Wondering, wandering, whispering, whining.

Whirling to figure out

what went wrong.


Then you sit

sit and see

see the changes you’ve made

see the words you say

as they slice through

the tender flesh

the timid glance

the trusting heart

and leave a mess,

a plastic shell

disembodied voice

limp string tied to what you

saw and said.

Continue the fun!
