Slipknot Tongue, by Daniella Valz Gen

A glitch
A gap in the flow

Tenuous puddled words
pushed out by sheer muscle
My tongue sweats a language
that tears out my cavity

Too many vague words
to convey what I know
but cannot express

The labour of speech thickens
my saliva into rancid staleness

To seek refuge in silenceย isย toย tasteย it
