how good the words feel as they
swim wriggle flow start and stutter
halt back up zoom forward flutter.
You and they are long past locking up.
Fashion your words into a knife
long and crystalline, transparent and
sharper than sliced sunlight;
and show that knife to your enemy
with a hand untrembling and strong.
I can hardly wait to see what designs
you will make as you play that knife upon
the page of your further life.
Here’s a small piece of me
to pin on that page.
