Spoken Word

i watch them
speak

poets
with
funky
loud-mouthed
personalities

they speak
their words
accompanied
by wild
hand
gestures

suffering
for their art
in front
of an
audience

it happens
in a certain
tone of voice

and none of it
is like me

but the world
says art
is a certain way
and i know
i am another

i ask
if this means
my words
are less meaningful
simply whispered
in the dark
