Talk laughter conversation

stops

immediately

when he arrives.

No, not some

social outcast without a name

not some nobody nerd.

Everyone

knows who he is

and hates him for it.

He freezes their tongues,

snatching up words and crushing them in

his fists.

Siegfried comes and

all is quiet.


Inspired by Leigh's poem Siegfried. (It's under my Favorites, but his account is Leigh Itai Pogue.)
