Attack on Words

Poetry by | August 10, 2014

I am beneath your words
I climb up
Holding on to each word you say
I cling
To the nice adjectives

With my chin up I look straight

On paragraph walls
I am beneath your words
I run fast
Sprinting towards the blockade
I hit hard
Your privilege speech –
down it came
