Writing

Words (better, between,
buried) — when I first
heard them dropped and burst
with meaning unseen,

crying out to be
captured, colored, turned
into visions learned
thru listening (see

their definitions
with eyes closed). The brush
of one word so plush
past the next, fission

and fizzing, splitting
intent into threads
that unravel, shred.
Each word transmitting

webs of sensation
that trails false to true,
then translates into
alliteration.

The next time it’s heard
like ashes, unsure,
purpose fades and blurs,
nothing but a word.
