The Taste and the Cure

for dVerse




The taste shapes

acrid, like medicine

clichés, cacophony

actions louder than words

which even if I spoke

you’d never hear

so entrenched in your world

blood kin consecrating

I am the gnat buzzing

swat-worthy, flicking your hand

to drive me away

I am the medicine

you spit out never believing

you might need.

My rainbow horizon beckons.
