quietBoy

there is a boy
who doesn’t know how
to speak to anyone

don’t worry too much
he can talk
his mouth can produce vowels
his tongue can hit the roof
of his mouth to form consonants
and knows how to string sounds
along enough to form sentences
but he doesn’t know how to speak

peaking too early,
he learned the weight of words
at a young age
and hasn’t forgotten it since

And since then
he has talked plenty a time
and held many a conversation
but hasn’t spoken a word
