Social Calls

Updated on April 1, 2017

A simple madness was

wrought, this careful trepidation,

on how to understand

being understood,

I find myself amazed

that I appear so steely

in my responses to responses

when there's a whole prairie

opening up in my lungs

undying embers in my heart

wanton abandonment

yet my chosen words

are far too rigid

that reveal as much as conceal

and leave me alone

in the sunny fragrant winds

wasted on me.
