On the screaming of silence

Poetry By: SilentSmiles

on the screaming of silence

Our tongues dangle like open leaves,

their bellies full of autumns veins-

An incision climbing down its back

with a crackle and a hiss.

The breezes open their blue, blue cuts

and jump around the stammering trees-

On the blunt tips of smoking crowns

we stick our speech like sap,

and undermine the bees strong laughter.

Our hands jingle like Christmas bells

going under false greens-

Our insides linger like disease

painting the pages of memory,

With pent-up ink

and smatterings of abstract scenes.
