Public Speaker

Flicker, flutter
Damn strand
Can’t understand this lyrical dissonance

Come to!
Pay attention, God damn you
I offer my soul
My soul
to you

Supple compliments
Ingratiating, endearing
Fluttered eyelashes
Smile
(always with the smiles)

Lights on, off, twice
All quiet
“I am here today to…”
Rail
Ram
Prod, jam, stick, stab
Applaud
(always with the applause)

Slowly climbing
Strong rhetoric
Defiant
Adamant
Provocative (accidentally, of course)
Point proven!

Applaud
(always with the applause)
Smile
(always with the smiles)

I go home
Quiet
Alone
Simmer down
Fall asleep

Flicker, flutter
Damn strand
Can’t understand this lyrical dissonance
