Rattling Words

Naive youth he’d been

Over-enthusiastic,

Life filled up dreams like

Balloons… Time whittled away

Wild exuberance, left him

Weathered shell; shut down,

But for rattling words inside—

Thoughts falling through small

Spaces where his ribs only

Breathed short half-breaths anymore.
