Everybody Has a Story

… recycle

A p r o n h e a d -- Lilly

An observation, an opinion, an idea,

a story—everybody has one.

. . . But not every voice is heard.

Not every voice can

b  -r  -e-  a-  k—–

through the drone of drilling words—

to cut the wake, the constant flow.

Not every voice can

p   e   r  s  i st andresist

to ring through

when talked over, walked over, socked in the heart over

and over again.

Self-centered . . . no, well,


But certainly self-absorbed.

Is your story better than my story?

Is mine better than that   –>other,

that other passing silent, unheard, misunderstood

because of the steady surge of my lexicon, your hex upon

an other’s unsurpassable worth?

Not every voice can

s w e L L L

in a surge of soul

to cut the wake, the constant word wash,

when mauled over, scrawled over, quenched in the spirit over

and over again.
