Oh, Flighty Words

Words, words, words

Birds

Words fly away

So many

So free

Can’t catch them

Sometimes

Or recapture them

When they’re

Flapping adrift

They must be

Seized

As they glide

In thin air

Sometimes

Vaguely hovering

Sometimes

At the tip of the,

Right at the tip of

A cliff

Unable to take

Flight

I know what I want to

Say

But, but

Oh, it’s right on the

Tip

Let the pen

Release

Stumble

Soar

Oh, flighty words
