I wear a heart on each


They muffle what

You're saying

Your smile hurts

Stinging syringes

Your fingers your eyes your mouth

Red pens

Your tounge clicks as you read off

Your prepared script

Lies come from your hands

Like sashes from a magician

One right after another

Seemingly from no where

These walls are too thin

These blockades too close together

As I collapse and scream

My own fingers muffle the noise


To my surprise

I go off like a sprinkler
