Dyslexic Laments

cuz life is hard and so are words

Never inquired of you:
the truth behind your tongue.
Speak, brother, speak;
until the gaping void is gone!


I lean in
to taste your malice
and remember
villains have mothers too.


How can I not sit with you
amongst the rubble?
In the familiar cold dark,
we’ve come full circle.


My friends sent to ask,
“Are you him?”
I want to believe you
while in holding.
