tried not to use too many words
this time
usually trying does not work
this was no exception
there are very few exceptions
that is what makes them exceptional
unlike this brokerage
of peace in hissed bits,
words that leap
from a shaken can
in pieces of a whole —
next time,
next time,
next time I’ll just say
