Dislocated Voice

I do not
I do not want
I do not want to speak

Not much to say 
feel so oblique

Both feet fit well 
between each set of teeth

Fear of words coming from its mouth
Try to stop them having a life of their own

But it does no good

Take her for a dance and  
Blow the deal being too nice

Hesitate once too often and allow
the bacteria to fill the pauses 
and eat braincells, 
they feast on intellectual potential

The abandonment of virtue 
the politics of betrayal and pretending 

unwinding resolutions 
breakfast upon failure
