A vital part of your identity…

if i’ll braid your tongue
could you speak a little bit formal
a little bit nicer
if i’ll clip it with a hairpin
could your pitch be a little bit low
a little bit sweet
if i’ll sew it with a thread and needle
could you talk to me like a priest
delivering his sermon
and not a sergeant
giving commands to his soldiers
can’t we have a discourse without
the subject of philosophy and you acting like a lawyer
can’t we talk in simple manner
without reciting a declamation like my mother
can’t we exchange views
without giving a lecture like my father
can’t we talk seriously and honestly
without acting a spiel like my brother or sister
can’t we plainly talk like a true friend

the way you talk can point the kind of circles you have
the job that you have
and how you see the world
it’s your window into who you are
which can be a vital part of your identity…



triangle writes – Truth and Lie

the story will be said to unfold

and launch a narrative score of truth

releasing unfounded pickled flaws

snaking through the jagged stones

.

winding erratic lines submerged

deep in a silent sea of myth

talking heads with mouths unturned

leading its way out sitting on the tongue

.

heart pounding quivering win

almost a minute to touch the string

the boundary is a word away

truth is yours the lie is doomed to decay
