Poem of The Week-Slam

Slammed by emotion

Learning to forget

The daggers of the word

Queer

Words knifing at the truth

Keeping the monster shielded

Scanning the page

Letting the vocal cords

Exit the tied tongue

The enamel barrier

Chapping the lips

Funneling the air

To the ear drum

Dragging the mud

Until it cakes

And washes until

The sawed off skin

Breathes
