Running out of things 
to not say about the things
I can’t put to words

these status updates
masquerading as line breaks
broadcast to ether

either quit writing
or to sleep feeling empty
a false choice really

writing every day
makes possible the next day
and another day

silence the voices
who would make you keep quiet
by writing them down
