my brain is more tired than my eyes
and i cant figure out the complications
of the beautiful intricacies of language
we think we are superior because we speak
but it is partially limiting
words are the absence of freedom because
it means that expression is expected
even when we dont want to speak
even when the words allude us
and especially when
the words fail us
we become our failures even though the words themselves failed
and no knowledge
of a dictionary or a thesaurus will help me in this space
in this absence of communication and
expression and in this absence of living
twenty-six letters that kill me and twenty-six letters
that i absolutely adore
