plain talk

ernst c. marcelin: lips

i have carried you everywhere
you are there
on the tip of my tongue
i speak
and in the word
you appear
and flow through my mouth
so many words
you say
for a question so simple
so much wine for little thirst

don’t be misled by the laughter
hope surpasses the question
although i have sewn you to my soul
love unravels
and i am at the end of the thread
as you are
at the tip of my tongue
