Consonants and Vowels

The brain turns to mush
Like congealed alphabet soup
She reached for an R or G
But only grasped a dot for an I, and a cross for a T

Muddling through the orange sea
While dying inside, yearning for green
Unpopular at best, but it doesn't seem to matter
For in the end, it's up to some other man

A soft and tender yet grating voice
Erupts from between two thinly parted lips
As if they were holding back a torrential storm
That's taken cover in the cheek

Words threaten to jump out
At the first opportunity
But careful tactics
Bestow the speaker with prestige

A falsehood, perhaps
Or a neater picture of reality
It's really all the same
You are what you eat
