The Mighty Nothing

The Mighty Nothing

Ditch truth, tell only rumors.
Boil before serving.
Nothing real is as mighty as something
you hear on the grapevine.

The seams of your age-old wound
are the only reminder of the sliver that pierced your cheek.
The memory is almost lost in the middle of glorious light.

Your tears streak down to nothingness.

  1. I’ve always known people like that, the gossips, the tittle-tattlers, the poisoned of tongue. Once they were a minor irritation…
    Now social media has given them enormous power and how mighty they are…and real becomes less real.
