Thoughts Written On Napkins as Though That Makes Them More Earthy and Legit

the twisted truth is that
to survive in this world
many a man trades
his language of love
for the language of commerce.

devotion to business
bridges oceans
but never souls.


writers blocking me out
like there's no tomorrow,
yesterday, or between.

one can do their best
and still rely on words' ability
to fail.

for letters entangle thoughts
while managing, to some extent, to instill
unrelenting hope for their freedom.
