talk is not cheap

2 Mar

talk is not cheap

you pay for each syllable you utter

and the words that you say

or write

linger like some horrible disease

eating away at reality

making what we once could feel

with our own two hands

into something phony, fake

and really expensive

and silence may seem to be free

of charge

but it will cost you more than all

the words ever spoken or written

sorry, my dear reader

i haven’t a happy ending to this screed
