there are words in my bones
that scrape my marrow
they trip over my tongue
with the taste of a dime
they are the air that whistles my teeth
and I do feel them open and close
between my joints.

I want to say this poem is talking about mean words and how they can sever us so easily. Am I right? Regardless, I think it's an excellent poem. I love the style of it. I can tell you're an experimental poet. (I'm also experimental.) *high fives*
