you can’t fake a fold
when you really crave a cut
or a curve

when wearing earbuds
in a cafe sounds like nonsense
to your unplugged ears

when you see a red sky
at night
not in the morning

when you don’t believe
in worshipping
any trinity

when you wish for a gale
but settle for an exhale

and a scream
from your false vocal folds
becomes the truth
