some talk about their children

some talk about their children

some about their boyfriend or husband,

 

they discuss the weather

politics and fashion,

 

even the five-year-old knows the difference

between a democrat and a republican,

 

not three years ago i remember

i tore all the newspapers

swearing to never

bother with this shit again.

 

people and places will probably

never mean a thing,

 

i was born with nothing but my

skin,

 

and yet the impassive excesses of

men, women, children and dreams,

 

the tongues wag for more
and more

saliva drips.
