animal sounds crawl in my ears and do the strangest things to me. the consequence and fabled fears alive inside your cat-like call. animal sounds, your native-tongue, you learned from oral history. you saved them for a time when you can’t say exactly what you mean to me. and the feelings you’ve been drowning in for years wash you up and anoint your skull with screams of “what’s the point?” the feelings never last for long. until the crucial moment when you find them. it was the first of twenty nights I held my breath to fall asleep, a steady diet of moments locked in time, falling into these feelings. animal sounds, your native-tongue, you learned from oral history. animal sounds, your native-tongue, you learned from oral history. you saved them for a time when you can’t say exactly what you mean to me. in the language you’ve been babbling for years wanton wonders burst from you like words from open sores. you never finish what you start to say, encroaching consciousness gets in the way.
