This language is not for children
This language is not for children.
It will roll off your tongue if you don’t hold it tight.
It will break your teeth
and turn your whisper into a hiss.
It will knock against your skull as you sleep.
This language will jump like a wild horse.
It is easy to fall and lose your words.
Once free, who knows where those words can go.
They will sink into the ground like droplets and come back howling with the wind.
They will dance at the back of your throat and gush from your lips
and spill your innermost thoughts
for everyone to see.
