212 Readings


I am the currency of tongues. Imperfect
tool, deadly weapon. Through me you trade
the world for meaning. I stand between lovers
like a sword. When I say lamb you lie down
and bleat. Many wish to become me – artist,
healthy, President, invisible, traveler
. Believe me
at your peril. Only the dumb know my secret.
