vernacular over emotion

they judge
honest reactions
because they
don’t feel anything
but a need
to be praised
for their own
cleverness
at the expense
of saying anything
at all

i feel the urge to speak
torn away
screaming to nothing
while they blather
endlessly
felating themselves
for lack of
toothpicks
so desperate
to be seen
little more than a mirage
at the edge
of art
