Cheap

All of the words are cheap

They mean nothing

so are they worth nothing?

I’ll just play them over and over

Cinching

it tighter to the point

Of

silences, given no other

sounds

Of

Empathy

emanate from a distance

surrounded by the

Void.

 

never forget the dream

walking down each side of a fence.

You say, “I’m going to leave,

but before I go,

I will give you a gift.”

Gifts come in forms unlike presents.

Of knowing

Of hearing

Of seeing

Of feeling

It took me a long time to recognize the gift

never knowing what to do with it.

Pop

goes the liar,

spending air on promises.

Pop

goes the preacher

sending them on their way.

Pop

goes the future

drifting up and to be seen

another day.

Snap, Krackle, Pop

not cereal,

just aching, worn out knees.

new plants closer to earth

sit and shake,

mired in their mirth.

Making fun of the creaking and groaning

sitting down hard as I go,

But soon it won’t matter

When this garden puts on its show.
