Your pride is pinned
An icy stone
Pressed to your palate, ossified
Although you tried
To force reply
Through the gap
Between your teeth
It stuck fast,
Entangled and ensnared
By all the tiny masked suggestions
That you ought to learn your lesson
Dim your lights
Dull your brights
Drop your hem

Smile, pretty 
Thank them


  1. Nice write. Compliments are often gratuitous and meaningless, but not always. I enjoyed the read.
