I learned your dictionary
it’s nothing new
I learned it long time ago
so I know the meaning
I know the meaning of every word
and how to put those words into sentence
that makes perfect sense:
yeah, poetry is easy
you know it is
when nobody dies
and everybody likes.
where are the people? where are the trees,
sleepy owls, tiny little noises in the grass,
where is the sky?
I see a lot of compromises my son,
the ones you say you make because you want to,
and that’s some bullshit my boy,
oh yes it is.
you’ve left me all alone, and I din’t say a word,
not a word;
every once in a while,
you can hear the sound of those words
that were never said.
