Some people worry about being talked about,

but I worry about

not being talked about.

Some people can keep a secret,

but most people


and with this knowledge,

the plot thickens.


thrive on gossip

and need it

to socially survive.

Plant a scandalous seed

and the tree of gossip

will flourish—

Some people promote

with big headlines

but I prefer

a whisper

the grapevine

never stops growing

it overcomes

brick walls

it climbs


it climbs

People’s lives are so boring

that they fill their tired hours

with useless gossip.

It’s the language of the lost

and the demented.
