UNSPOKEN
– by Neo Blaqness

You knew
From the moment
The air left your lungs
Joined by the tone of
Your voice box
And the form of your lips
That your mind was
Too late
To stop what your spirit
Had warned you about
All along
Gasping
As if somehow
You could retrieve
Both the air and sound
Before they morphed
Into something understood
Regrettably
Like the embarrassment
Of broken wind
You await a response
To the foul air
Of words
That should have
Remained
Unspoken
