words

remove the words from the books
scrape all the paper clean
words will last forever in our hearts

wrestle our speech from our throats
cut the tongues from all our skulls
try everything you can to stop us

we were born with words in our beings
our very vitalities are infused with them
they are in every last woman, child and man
if you look you will find they are inside you
