PUNCH PROSE & POETRY

SMALL TALK Sarah Tucker

Words never rolled so gracefully as when uttered by you. In silence, I listened to all of your beautiful stanzas, your philosophical sermons, your sound concepts greatly above my reach. In vain, I stretched out my hand, and you kept talking. And I fell for it. Self-loathing never seemed so close as when your mouth was open and self-preservation never more entangling as when you were silent.
