WARDS OF TALKING

Wards of talking
A mental home for the madmen
    with minds caged

        Cigarette butts backdrop
    The black and white floortiles
        squared

Words waste wonder
While we whisper
    we whisper behind his back
Bitching the boy beyond
Pizza and beer
Our stained speed minds
and traffic courts

Wards of talking
In which we wonder with
    paled white faces veiled
            black
    sensitivity we have hidden or lack

Where is that boy now
Out of our rain
Laughing at our lipstick eyeliner and pain
Running down deeper
Damp hallways
Allies bleeding of animal leather lust
In the cold gray slabs of prison cells
Outside the wards of talking
Saner than the sane ones caged in
Self imprisonment and chains
Linking to one another only by hair veils
Black bloodshot eyes
      cigarette butts the darker backdrops
      of floortiles squared
Saner than the sane
Wards of talking
