you speak through words
that pounce off your tongue
and whip up against my ears
(my heart)

you, hardly knowing their strength
and me, hardly knowing how to tell you

they bite
they roar
they thrash and show their fangs

and you throw them
up and down
and out
and through
and into every bit of silence

that stands there innocently
