fear suppressed  

in the orb  

of a head  

the jawline of parentheses  


farcical face  

lips sideways  

like closed-up petals  

before a nocturnal bloom  

the S a tissue-tether’d tongue  

a farce of a forest  

in that growth  

is prohibited  

cue the emotional synth  

music with no  

additional text  

I suddenly like  

a silent song
