Martha O’Brien – Shut Up

Shut Up

You talk too much, do you know that? Your mouth opens too wide
and the words come out faster than they should do- you go on
and on until the words run out, there’s only so much
you can say, I suppose. It’s a constant stream
of unwanted words, I can’t believe you’re
still going on. And as I strip the tape
you’re still going on and as I tie
the knots you’re still going on
and as it goes around your
face you’re still going on,
but before long the
tape is covered
and you have
no choice
but to be
silenced.
