By Benjamin Rodriguez

you, you, you
are a revolving door of compliments
sunken in the Sahara, no chance,
Meaning: Possibilities are undefined
but you exist to serve the sand, grain-bearer

Stop-Starting, not beginning you mouth,
A gaping coral reef before this sentence
was translated to thoughts, to feelings
materializing nonsense kept in brimstone,
your certainty, and I quote whatever, whenever that will come to me,
“I am well-versed, eroded
The Rosetta stone for those
Illiterate, confused
That break before me”
End your sentences sooner, they’re sensitive
to caffeine and your medicine that dries your scalp
or, perhaps there is nothing left in your head
to bring about more strands of spaghetti’d knowledge
