The Unsilent Life

The Unsilent Life

I avoid silence
most times by talking myself
aloud though quiet -
as if I had good
advice to add to the things
that cluster and spin
around my fat head.

The speech bubbles float among
the beams. Yes, female
gnats do inquire of
my health in this one moment
as if that mattered.

I wait for late hours
when all are asleep but me
and I no longer
have to look behind
my back for lurking shadows
of all my lovers.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
