Poetry 101 Rehab: Talk

silence is the void
surrounding us.

you shift,
uncomfortable –
your posture radiates
discomfort. so does
your body language.

you’re restless,
and i’d really like to
sit quietly.

and then you speak.

your words are

(you just want to
take in oxygen,
exhale carbon dioxide)

so you
chatter on. the air is
with empty words,
my quiet ruined.

they say talk is cheap:
it’s true. your words are of
little value.
