You open lips and yammer on,
unmindful of your listener’s yawn.
We yearn to hear your final word,
but when we think that it’s been heard—
your topics trite, your point invalid—
you treat us all to more word salad!

Your prosery and versity
display little diversity,
and yet, my dear, both night and day,
you sputter words—a constant spray.
We yearn to hear your lips are sewn,
for we have stories of our own!

Prompt words today are yammer, topic, final, diversity, spray and salad. Image by Enis Yavuz on Unsplash.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Thereare people endowed with extra supply of words and no brake to stop the mouth uttering them.
    I have to tell you that, since my grandfather was a dental technician, I pilfered a prosthesis just like your image from his lab to take to college with me. I would put it on the table in the student cafeteria, and everybody had fun feeding “Fedya” and even sticking cigarettes between his teeth.

      Ha..I did a retablo for a dentist friend and when she died her relatives gave it back to me. It has a number of human teeth in it that she gave me to put in it along with the items I had gathered.
