They can’t speak at all.

Droplets slipping out
as the words they speak
come in contact with your ears
and covering
doesn’t stop the toxins
from making their way in.
Ear plugs only block out noises to an extent
the louder they become
the harder it is to ignore.
Stopping at the source
is the more concrete route
grabbing the glue
sticky lips
clamp them down.
Then they can’t speak at all
and you can remove the inserts
allowing yourself to listen freely
without the toxic interruptions.
But I must ask
who’s to stop your outbursts?
If one must act so aggressively
are they themselves the aggressor?

Thanks for reading.
