    Language is like fuel to a car;
    what is a poem without words?
    Lacking mobility, it cant travel far.

    the popcorning bell calls of lyrebirds
    glitter in gumshade seams and summer dust,
    gliding unballasted by meaning, purest words

    "Let them leave language to their lonely betters
    Who count some days and long for certain letters;
    We, too, make noises when we laugh or weep:
    Words are for those with promises to keep."
    - W.H. Auden, "Their Lonely Betters"

    When words are imprisoned by fear and mistrust,
    held under the tongue or swallowed for good
    they rub causing friction, just ripe to combust.

    Oops!

    A poem without words is just
    a metaphor for musical scores.
    When mouths can't spell-out, the heart it must.


    Words are more than engines that could
    bear the load of crosses and gore
    of wars that no one understood.

    these same words were used before
    light and awful, as bubbles of blood
    that shimmer, burst, and sound no more

    the rains have come to gift us a flood
    frogs hop out, 'croak croak!!'
    so grab your boots and stomp the mud

    The Welsh weather, and the ground it soaks
    are good for the grass thus too for the lamb,
    but not us; don't forget your wellies and coat.

    While some sing spring a dithyramb
    my chores pile up till I can't think,
    a brain connection traffic jam.

    she wakened to the ringing clink
    of chains shuffling outside. headsore
    and wool-tongued, she vowed (again) off drink

    Harry was an awful bore...
    such a terrible man with a flaky scalp,
    but his wife was a fucking whore!

    let's pack the bags and visit the alps
    climb the hills and enter some cave
    get lost over there and make a sign: 'halp!!'

    Six feet under sounds cool.
    Artifacts to be exhumed;
    tossed into the dead pool.

    It should not be assumed,
    despite the signs, that the end is nigh
    and humanity is doomed.

    it caught me by surprise, but just
    as strange: i now brace for a lie
