Candied Yam

language as noise 

loud and repetitive 

phrases stack like 

Pre-made valentines 

filled from a list

 

words are stripped from the nuances 

that add texture 

and shades

while smiley faces 

replace 

descriptors 

as communication degrades

 

ugly birds crunching 

on crackers

echo

the raucous 

over and over

 

loons singing tunes

in monotone 

irritate the ear bones 

 

Eloquent soliloquy

stammering

devolving 

into

yammer
