Real men

Breviloquence

 

So here we are again

Me, you, and the words that spill

No tourniquet can staunch the flow

The need to bleed too overwhelming

Oh, to be a more taciturn man

The laconic stone

Allowing just so much expression

And no more

A master of the compartmented heart

The art

Of seeming strong

Without having to prove it

That’s a good trick

So I’m told.

 

 

 

 

 

Words and image are my own.
