less-talk

less-talk
    is my greatest fear,
    is already too near,
    is already too here,
    is the death of me, dear.

less-talk
    means less fighting,
    means less spiting,
    means less delighting,
    means more writing.

less-talk
    makes me cry,
    makes me hide,
    makes me die,
    makes me fine.

less-talk
    awakens me,
    helps me see,
    ruins “we”,
    says I’m free.

tonight i swear
less-talk is my nightmare
but tomorrow, it’s fair
to think of less-talk as a norm.
