“Certain Words”

“Certain Words”

And phrases I no
longer say.
And if they should
slip and pass
my lips,
they edit
themselves.
Today, not even
the Queen
in Alice’s
Wonderland would
scream,
“Off with his
head!”

There are some
things
need never be
said again.

These days
I bow
in a steamy shower
in reverence
to ours
and others
set aflame.

For there are some
scenes
need never be
seen
ever more.

In memoriam
