I’ve kept my vow of silence for a month,
Itches in the larynx like the prisoner’s file
and smells like years before
when we sat down on the road
and sang the Iceberg song.
[One stretching throat
if well tight,
can hold a soul for a life
(perhaps, even more).]
-they have waited for NOTHING-

but it never feels enough:

I can left me for dead and keep smiling
like everything’s according to plan.
I can say sensible nonsense
in this soft
I can bury alive my mother tongue.
I can cut and stick old words.
I can even call it p-O-e-T T-r-Y
I can, I cannot let them know
about the Iceberg Song.
seen my future.
My future, staring from the patterned wood.
(the tree rings say I’ll be thinner,
you should start worrying, too).
