Give ear to my words, O Lord;
    give heed to my sighing.”  Psalm 5:1

words are easy to toss
in the direction of your ears,
the rumors of
my wandering faith;
the trickles of compassion
that harden in my frozen heart;
the murmurs of anger
i harbor towards others;
the tinkles of discordant hurts
that i cannot turn into lullabies;
i can only hope you hear their echos,
even as i try to silence them.
