Burst a Grape ~ Poem

Burst a Grape by Joe Reid Kirby III

Burst a grape,

Don’t whine about it,

Or become violent …

You have the right to remain silent …

Also, the right to speak …

 

The only place my tongue belongs,

Is on her,

Not hidden in my cheek …

 

This is strength you’re looking at,

My inner voice told me I lost the weak …

Unclog the mouth of anything,

& watch it annoyingly leak …

 

Allow that unadulterated voice to be heard as a child,

To witness it grow,

Like the rising slope of a mountain,

Without a limiting peak …

 

If it’s truth you seek,

Live amongst truth-sayers …

Those who could honestly,

Sometimes brutally …

Narrate your week.
