Nod Yo Head

download

A hushed history for the timid
My brain puffs on a cigarette.

But lips tucked towards my clavicle
Guide whispers to condense modesty
Ruined by the grandiose wince
That absolves
When strangers obscure familiarity.

We’ve come far enough
To adjust our eyes
To a split second glance-

Head-nod to acknowledge
That silence understands more
Than hello.
