Our Words

Our words are being turned
back onto us by malevolent
authors of posts –
online –
spat & thrust at us –
barge & shove of undercuts
without gloves as we watch
a thought get cancelled out
& a passion smothered by a
silencing palm –
no pen will work well –
part-sleep with a disturbing
carousel of dreams & shove
of consciousness –
This will
be edited by another’s eyes
