words
can never be traced

their curves
will lead you to many doors
down corridors
painted portraits
ancestors with wide brimmed hats
and long mustaches
their eyes will swallow your
true meaning

it will be like crushing yourself
when you refuse to look into their eyes
brushing aside
looking through the spaces

words
really don’t mean what they say

forgive them
and don’t be afraid to erase
