Mute by choice at school all day, motionless at work or play.
When pressed a question he would say, mostly nothing in his way.
Speaking with his teeth clenched tight, no word understood aright.
Eyes half hidden in his head, stiffened movements partly dead.
Stares and grins and silent cries, without reasons recognized.
With haunting silence casting spells, while hidden in his human shell,
What if speak, he only would, above his picture “Hollywood.”
