Misunderstood Pleas

Memories are tricky beasts
who pick at thoughts
and starve at feasts

Past words swarm
threatening like angered bees

Grown to birds in chorus form
they escape the mouth
as misunderstood pleas


“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

-Benjamin Franklin
