Abisola Mojeed | Ear Infection

It seeps in like a bad cold

Punching screeching thumping

Words. It locks in like lockjaw,

causing pain that shoots like arrows.

Words. Keep your diction antibiotics

they just won’t work. These ears

are filled with liquids in the

forms of words. I have

an ear infection.
