ripple in water/

©2021 Michael Raven

i need to scream but
my mouth is sutured
by waxed thread
and geas-bound
my eyes are teeth
pressed flat with coin
for the ferry
my breath a razor
ribbon shred my throat
fingers broken in motion
making pictures 
out of words
i want i want i want
they say
but no echo
echo
echo


echo
