Fishgawp

Subdued and sorry stump of tongue

Muscle, failed

Pulseless lump, gawp of fish mouth French kissing the airless

Silence 

Stretch yourself – stretch until it 

Stings and screams like taut

Elastic 

At least then there’d be some

Noise, some 

Offering, some 

Input – and it’s there alright 

It has claws 

And fire

And rage 

And explosions 

And a voice, a voice 

An unheard voice 

But there you are, with your foot

On its neck for fear 

Of others.
