words #7

words #4i use words ’cause
my head’s full-

plugging ears with
thumbs
to stop the
spill

over keyboard
and paper, like rain
from collapsing
cloud, flood-

allowed to burst and break
for writing’s
sake.

make mistakes-
like
pins on flawless
face.

catch them in bowls-
use ’em to stick
when there’s a
a place.

words,

keep em’ short.
