Practically Catharsis

Speak Goddammit. I’ll wring
you till you sing a sonnet
so sonorous, that weeping
will only unerringly honor it.

Sing to me so lyrically
an Iliad, but brief!
Make Troy of ennui
An Odyssey of relief

Lend me your voice
For un-screamed screams
walls stricken at half-force
For sake o’ deferred dreams

this is practically catharsis
