shutters up


i'm not really
good at this
i actually invited someone in
and now i sit
verbally paralyzed
least they show

i feel like blowing
out the lights
and shuttering the windows
pretending no one is home
will the dogs stay quiet?

i don't know what
i'm doing posting
internal head ramblings
for all to see
i'm torn to more privacy
the journal
of ink and paper
the compostable words
subjected to time and space
easily silenced

these words travel
too fast and far
if only
they could be retractable
