i'm a noun in a box with my pluralized,
anglicized friends, friends, can i even call them
friends anymore? do they know me? do they
need me? were all those sunday night dreams of
growing old together and
forever passing notes in school with
pictures of faces we swear the teacher made at us omg
nothing to you or i or
anyone in this confounded place?
of course, nobody will answer me,
as i'm just a noun, and nouns don't, won't,
can't,
talk.
