None

I have a tongue
loosely haloed
over obedience,
making lashings
that are more playful
than imposing.
I cannot swallow
my pride as wastefully
as I once did.
I make a point to feel validation
with language of the lips,
perhaps posing from a pen.
So, when did it become true
that nightmarish speeches vanish
and paper seems untouchable,
words seem much more of a
pained mouthful
than they used to be.
