Deprecating Tongues

wicked strikes
on
language
reaching
over seas
across
time difference
plaguing
mental disease
on
populations, tribes,
nationalities

breathe in polluted
words
breathe out
anxious
injurious
leftovers

bipolar whispers
grumbling fault finders
sniveling rascals
serial hope killers
poisoning
airways
stench upon
putrid vocabulary stench

virtually
grasping hands around
necks
and squeezing spirits
away.

  1. Your poems are beautiful, visceral, jarring…and lots of other words that don’t totally make sense when I try to string them together. Please keep writing; there are people out there, like me, who really appreciate your work 🙂
