war within

the war i’ll never win

stationed in my mouth

- where my teeth bite my tongue.

the words want to come

i warrior my words;

no war is won.


as i lick the taste away;

defeated, in between.

i can never say what i mean.

polite, nice, lady-like,


swallow the reaction,

sip in the silence - every time.

the war i’ll never win is hidden,
