Tongue and Teeth

from by Send Away Stranger



I should stop throwing
All these books I’ve never opened
Into boxes I’ll never see again,
But I know how the stories end.

My mistakes slip so smoothly
Through the cracks between my memories
But you’ll all have forgotten this by then.

You’re missing out and you’ll never know it
And I’m restless with ideas
While you sit in silent doubt,
A house that’s been snowed in.

Sticks and stones will break like bones
But your words just sink deeper.

It’s too late for this.

Existence is the only way out of it.
