The Injured All   Leave a comment


sometimes a person
forgoes
words like such and whatnot
and such whatnotness
and hears real words like milk and wire

it’s all so bloody serious
this walking around with regular faces
looking uninjured
as we pass the salt, buy a beer, sell underwear,
teach names of persons, places, and things,
go to wars,
say I love you so
really, really, and such and so on etc.
