Ordinary words

What if they were like

Objects?

That you could touch with your hands?

Wipe a counter or a brow with Love?

Or spread an ermine Mercy

Over the body

Of a sleeping child?

What if anger had a bifurcated

Tongue

Lighting

Either chaff

Or

Home on fire

What word?

What ordinary word?

Would stop the fire

Speak peace to the wind

And rebuke

The dogs of loss
