Built Baby

She was build

without words


without sounds


without the tongue to

form things

Cords to

voice things

She was built


She uses hands

and people stare

What an odd thing to do

Why form words on

fingertips flails

When there's a message that needs


Defect from birth

they say in

starch white coast with

Pale pink lips that form

textbook words

toneless sounds

Broken baby,

screaming silence

Mommy drank too much

Punishment from God

others say in

starched white shirts and ties

spitting guttural moans

thumping their black books

Sinful tidings produce

Quiet uglies

Daddy's loose and fucking
