They Talk Backwards (Day 129)

Photo courtesy US Government 

they talk backwards and upside 
down in an underwater way 
that makes wind chimes shiver 
and sends a chill down our spines

so shameful we shrink from 
their lack of embarrassment 
is arrogance the same 
as confidence do you think

dear world please don't hate 
all of us we pray but we know 
that their spilled ink has 
stained our fingers too
