Forced to Speak

Go down the occasions:

the tally marks of days,

weeks, months, years

ago when something

was said, or not

said, or done, or

not done– enough!

What happens when one

no longer has anything

to say; when language

has outstripped

one’s desire to speak?

I’m at an impasse

and fear my words.
