A top end Grass Wren, Alice Springs. Not really petulant, just looked that way.
Five letters undid you.
Swayed you from that perverse course.
Jaw set firmly,
casting a thousand, silent words.
That feeling of caged,
held against your vaguest ideal.
as meaning evaporated effortlessly,
and you were powerless to hold them.
just would not form the words of your heart.
“But you don’t understand.”
Tears speak louder,
My heart imploded,
dissonance, like a Dali painting.
A cypher of chrysalis.
A new birth.
Five letters undid you, and me.
