Some words that fled before they were said
Some words that lined up and brutally insisted
Some words at the margins of a truth
Some words that huddled in a rant of riddle
Some words stolen from literature
Some words once spoken by a monarch
Some words said to have been said by Jesus
Some words plunged in with the sword
Some words held between the ancient trees
Some words perceived in the eyes of an otter
Some words that nobody heard at the death
Some words that became holy in the wind
Some words that were spoken only in the heart
Some words spoken on behalf of the terrified
Some words hurled into the mouth of an ocean
Some words between other words but distinct
Some words never never never ever ever ever.
