what i said instead

been spending some time
caught up

trippin on cracks
in the sidewalk made by tree
roots growing defiantly
where some
one said trees can only grow
in the parks and on the
margins
of the buildings

tangled in between
wires bumping
into walls and tables and having trouble
fitting through hall
ways weighed
down by traveling bags

caught
between poetry
and slander not
wanting
to name names.

stumbling on the earth
quakes caused by a switch
in languages trying
to drag out
words
from the depths.
