I'm never fully comfortable opening my mouth to speak, so I repeat, I repeat. I repeat

Repeat

I'm never fully comfortable opening

My mouth to speak.

I repeat. I repeat. I repeat

My order at the restaurant,

The confession of my love,

My plea with God for normalcy,

Before it ever leaves my throat.

I practice pronunciation with delicate

tongue flicks, and yet I always trip

over my words, creating nonsense

instead.

And so to save my breath,

I'll swallow as many frogs

As my taste buds will bear,

And I'll sew my lips up silent,

But maybe, one day,  elsewhere,

You'll hear my voice anew,

Through foreign lips that read confidently

My forgotten and forlorn poetry.
