“Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it more than half the battle.”  Criss Jami

 

Words

Words can be thin and easily folded,
neatly taken, put away,
never taking up much room,
always about to lead off
but never actually getting started,
an economy of scale for
benign conversations,
and sometimes words are
so swollen, so full
that I cannot fit them
into the narrow space between us.
