pressure point

i used to break crayan's, 
when lines would blur and 
scribbles would shift.

 now i break pencils

my flint faced ezekiel blackened 
toungued tip prophet speaks 
in charcoal whispers.

 the hapless refining of coal and
 fingertips creats the breaking point.

  dialect of the curved spine child... 

 now diadems of scoliosis 
 form my alphebetical vertebrae.
 bent with the beauty of
 a slant wrist. 

the quick snap of a skillcraft pencil, 
causes vowel harmonies to break 
against phonetic boundries.

 breaking pencils like breaking 
bread is for the holy and misgiven.
