Negligence in black rune

Sign languages spoken

Unfettered discourse

locale swelters introspect

dangerous air

nightshade among gardenias

engage, enrapture

to and fro flow

of yesterday’s tomorrow

awaken, hard, stop

a few bruises

foul of breath

quaking retribution but

rocking nonchalance

burned and buried

behind ear lobe

tattooed shameful

a scarlet letter

you can’t spell my name

you can’t read my name

you cannot say my name

you do not know

who we are

soon enough

you will.
