Bloodstained words
Drift on a crinkly page,
Conjuring up a narrative
Of wars and romance.

The punctuation marks desert
Their designated spaces
And leave the tyrant words
To discover a new idiom

Stepmother Tongue

I no longer speak
My native tongue.
She feels foreign
Like a steroid growth
Ever sprouting empty plosives
And vowels uncommitted.

To write
Since my magical powers
Are words not mind-reading games

Words

I love ’em
Would do anything for ’em
buy ’em ice cream
send ’em to Maui
arrange conjugal visits with their prefixes and suffixes
Words–I love ’em!
