like oceans

so easily you erase the words
you don’t want to hear that
i am edited over and over
again like a commercial
merely to entice, gather
what fish are caught inside
this net and cast aside
the few select words i
really mean to say to you;
but for what use are
such vowels and loves
and you’s — empty sounds
like oceans without waves,
ripples or glee
