When the words stop





The drought ...
when the ideas run out
and a thought sinks wordlessly
into the sand as soon as it is borne
from the tongue -
no time to lounge yet
no point in digging frantically
in the sand: it outnumbers
the words. It is knife sharp
in its cruelty and will only
collapse-- burying you
even as it shreds you to pieces.
