And so your words come slowly,

squeezed like frozen toothpaste;

they do not echo;

they fall with a dull clunk.

.

And so your words come slowly

like a sail boat becalmed;

they hover over her,

dark storm on the horizon.

.

And so your words come slowly;

she watches them

approaching from the distance

like a prairie dust storm.

.

Your

words
