    The truth is
    everybody has it
    blossoming at the tip of the tongue
    (cascading
    at every interjection;
    solace. Blessed be those inhaling
    to reload their mouth
    --a weapon of mass destruction
    for that is the precise instant
    (centrifuge alignment of planets!
    when some silence
    finally happens
    and the other can tell its truth.
    Though its just their turn.
    Hence the truth is a semaphore
    Whose turn is it? Green? Yellow?
    Damned be all of you and your itch
    to speak all the time.

    When I was alone
    (and I still am
    I used to talk to my cat
    and it was wise beyond its years!
    For every time I opened my mouth
    it licked itself, then scanned the room
    with its feline eyes
    and then it snoozed without a single worry
    in this damned world.
    And I hate cats.
    I have never had one.

    It's funny how a mere piece of original poetry triggers the thumbs
    down game. I doubt they come from a critical reading of the piece
    on its merits.

    don't get caught up counting thumbs,
    towards reality, it will make you numb...

    authentic thought is seen as such by those who are able...

    Why didn't you close the parenthesis on several occasions?

    Cadence, mostly.

    In strict sense, it means an aside, a sidetrack, so it signals that a
    thought is open and, in the overall sense it could even be removed
    and the whole structure would still say something, but by leaving it
    open (or closed in the case of other poets) it intends to convey a
    certain message, an unfinished thought which may find an answer
    later down the road.
