Words Thinking Of No Mouth

Clutching at Straws

By Ben Naga

Sometimes

feeling hollowed out and mouth

full of used tastes
seems it’s always like that

(no less true of any other state)
and

ballooned with intransigence

the serious collector of dancing Shiva statues
and grandfather clocks

pauses

in his breathing to reflect
or rather

design

a choice of words
which is not

what he is thinking but
only another symbol of that

that there are no such dragons
as things
