Hand-Crank Paper

Don't ask me to speak aloud.
There are switches to
Fill in blanks
In cadence
Imprecise and chopped together
From your scraps.

Double time my interpretation into
Auditory stimulation of
Communication centers
Beyond the inherent
Protocol for the duration of
The mechanism.

(music boxes cranked fast
Distort tunes
Throw off gears
And break springs. )

I need no words

I need no words
To fly
To scream or to
Let you know yes
To communicate
Create build love empower.

Words are only involved
Because you would call me
Deny my oppression as real
And yeah this is bending
Into it but

You never would learn
Without your own
Supports and adaptations.

Maybe your over dependance
Is your own damn
Limit of "vision."
