Guard Over My Mouth Sometimes

She thinks silence is profanity

She thinks I’m hiding secrets carefully

My mouth gallops in explosions

When I’m quiet they ask if I’m hurt

She thinks I’m angry or unsatisfied

When I carefully watch what words I apply


Is it okay if I shut my lips

Even a fool is counted as his opposite

When he closes his mouth’s leak

Wise men control how and when they speak.
