#2,680 I shall hush rude voices

Mike Bell/ June 7, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

I shall hush rude voices
by a shush of adverbs
upset detractors
by rail
of my words –
this week
those other run
days –
weight of sevens
& divide as septum –
uneven cuts
as slice [by
blunt blades] –
there lies our lover –
a whore in disgrace-
Settle all those feints
of phoney war
[& join
our union’s ired scorn]
