Day 20 – Human Enough

There are many things human enough
to be felt by us all without words
and many of those that should

for words take the metaphysical things
and rip them up from deep places
and bring them here
just a flower, just love, just death
and leave them, consumed
a landfill of common nouns taking space
on your dresser,
bought to relieve the great unknowing,
help us to feel like we’re one step closer
when all we’ve ever done
is add to the pile

I’m doing it now, I know.
There is nothing so human than speaking
when silence would be enough.
