I Just Can't

 

i can't say these wordless things, express this
stuff for you to poke and ponder and mock
or ignore.

i sit here as if drugged. there is nothing
in my mind right now. these words appear
on the screen as if by magic. they surprise
me. didn't i say i can't do this anymore?

i'm thirsty and there is nothing that will
quench the parched surface of my tongue.

and sometimes all i remember is one body
part. a hand. a thigh. a mouth. one eye.
the curve of a brow.
