Expat Poetry | Impoverished conversation by Dave Thomas

Expat Poetry | Impoverished conversation by Dave Thomas

Impoverished conversation

spaghetti letters tumble

jumble in Tetris

Letris falling

appalling, bereft of emotion

commotion, passing through the motions

of oceans

of scalding verboseness

closeness, sentiments starched

parched, tapioca still talking

hawking in a

ratcheted rut
