a word

a word
came and sat on my tongue
for an hour

soon
more words came
and then more and more

they started to
pile up
slip down my throat

so I spat them out
onto a piece of paper
and they just sat there
looking up at me

I took the corners
of that paper and
shook those words
around

they started to form
phrases
and verses
those words congealed
into what you are reading
right now

from my mouth to
your mind
it has to start
somewhere
