are written this way
in my world:
sip write say it
find it so weird sip more delete everything.
more this time.
write again say it again a little softer now.
it is getting better isn’t it?
or I am getting drunker?
one of the two..
more sips more words a mirror performance.
it feels weird that’s what it is to hear the words
travel through the air
and not send them out
straight from the heart.
my heart doesn’t know how to send words on UP
so what I really shouldn’t be doing is dragging them down
with wine I should be
breathing harder to build the beat
until they float on those notes
up, always up, light but firm
to where they belong
and then see what happens.
and never, never forget to take that next breath.
they’re only words.
they too will pass.
