A Silent Film

There was no need to retaliate
your words just crumpled up when they reached me
I didn’t bother to stretch out the creases
and read the shape of the lines.
I was only aware of a loud spin
they were my thoughts, I later realized
unedited clips
of a silent film
just running
and I wasn’t a witness
to see if it was even a black and white.
