words wait

crowded together
pressed against mind's edge
empty and faceless 
peer over the railing
above the page

pushed against
each other 
they perch to leap
between the lines
reaching outward
where my head lies
on the desk
and tiptoe
onto my outstretched hand

la 2020

One thought on “words wait

  1. Hello…… I read this and the other poems you posted……intrigued by the imagery suggested, engaged by the words and phrases used to hint at the intense emotions within….resonated and enjoyed re-reading them.
