A CONFUSION OF TONGUES

BUT I MADE IT CLEAR

YOU’RE NOT WELCOME HERE

AND NOW THE ASSAULTS

I HAVE TO HIDE

BUT REFUSE

AND SO, THE BATTLE–

ALONG DARK STAIRWELLS

ALLEYS, LOVELY STREETS

MUSILED THING, NO FACE

JUST STRENGTH AND A KNIFE

LONG ENOUGH TO PIERCE THE HEEART

BUT I DON’T GIVE IN

AND FINDING MY VOICE

AWAKEN COMRADES

CIRCLE UPON CIRCLE

WIDENING IN WAVES

LIKE A STONE HITTING A POOL.

A CONFUSION OF TONGUES
