Linguistic

Lately.

The words
have been
abandoning
me.

First they slip

off my fingertips
and
then
they desert my lips.

So now i

Try

breaking

apart

every language
I
have ever learnt.

And I
still
can’t
find
language enough
to
let you know.

 

How

I want to learn

You

Off by heart.

The patterns of your joys,

The rhythm of your sorrows-

I want to know it all.

 

And I

Want to learn

Every language you ever

Built from scratch

Only to have

It thrust

Under

The tip of your tongue.
