Words are not enough

In the spirit of NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) here’s a poem written and posted the same day:

Words and stuff

Words are not enough, look
expressionless bare without
an excess of exes
crowds of emoticons
colons stolen by brackets
exclamation!!
the last surviving punctuation?

we are bored with words
nuances bullied
by shiny shouty
stuff
