Chasing the word



Words scatter
Rubble into the ocean
Swallowed, broken, dissolved
Becoming more or less


Words matter
Hunted out of the wilds
Bound and bled and feeding
No one or someone or self

Words, hungry words
Searching, paranoid, needy
Spat out, crossed out, torn up
Losing. Lost.

Words whisper
Illusions into being
Devoured honey, beautiful sticky mess
Here. Now. Gone.
