SILENT VOICES
(1/14/2016)


Brother Bollocks
trips

he drops
things

he bangs into
quite evident
stationary
structures

he appears
quite clumsy

all because
he has so much
to say

so many
dialogue
opportunities
missed

so many
debates
anticipated

multitudes
of imaginary
verbal discourse
with those
he'll never
meet

he takes
these little
dialectical vacations
from time to time

tuning out
his most immediate
surroundings
in order
to get
the words
just right

Brother Bollocks
would have some
brilliant
conversations

arguments

rebuttals

insights

if he actually
ever talked
to anyone
anymore
