Stuck

i don’t want to be

just another #metoo
so i mostly keep quiet

and pretend not to notice

other people discovering
what I’ve long sensed –

people are more

than they seem –
and now, no matter

how many stories

are told, I can’t find
my tongue

swallowed years ago

by my own family,
shamed and humiliated

by my existence
