Word soup


I erase the first line again and again trying to
make sense of my jumbled words, these mismatchedΒ 
vowels and asymmetrical allegoryβ€”no, alliterationβ€”
my head is a swarming nest of hornets named half-rhymes and
what the fuck does villanelle rhyme with? intermingling
like egg whites and flour to make some half-baked idea

what i’m trying to say is that maybe the people who
have the most to say find that they can’t say it well at all.
