self squawk

talking to myself

not hearing what i say

words rattle in my ears

like the cackling of a jay

they cast me blindly out to sea

not harbored in my bay

i drift uncompassed and unmoored

as if i know my way

but when i write them down

and see what’s on display

it silences the loudest voice

my quiet truth i now obey

One thought on “self squawk
