Mr. Speaker

How the body speech
Is smashed against the rocks
And used f like iron cannon balls
Mr. Speaker

How the spoken word
Is demolished into blood splatter
In the mouth of a dream
By fragments of wood
Mr. Speaker

How the creaking sound
Is put through the blender
And used to rub down
The stock market
Mr. Speaker

How the language of science
Is used like a bendy balloon
And pushed into molds for teacups

Mr. Speaker
You well know this
How words make up trains of thought
That run off the tracks
And crash down hillsides

Mr. Speaker
You well know
How the souls of people
Leave letters burning in the fire grate
Like dislocated shoulder blades
And the ocean inside a rib cage
Is over fished by the common good

Mr. Speaker
We’ve heard all about it
Haven’t we
About how the opposition
Hang out their dirty laundry
In Daffy Duck cartoons for the elderly
Whilst walking hand on shoulder
Through the sewage pipes of a blind man’s bluff

And Mr. Speaker
Before I hand over to the honourable member
For mouth sores
Let me say this
I applaud all she does
For washing machines
