Bold Words

July 2, 2008
By Rachel Clark, Wasilla, AK

"Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh.."

Noise.

Music
blasts
Erupts from a dark cavern of
nonsensical syllables
Vibrating
Pulsating
Beating life
from beyond
intention

"Say nothing."

Defiant.

A dry tongue writhes
an ugly medium
of rhythmic channeled
nonsense

"Keep quiet!"

No.

Weary
cracked lips
tremble
launching sounds

tumbling
words

speech soars.
