Cosmological

Cosmological

This with the mother’s milk
a world to be mouthed

a world of silence
and of syllables

articulate at the lips
a world chewed over

or sometimes swallowed whole
words that wind us up

to the heavens
or drag us down

to unseasonable hells
breath pulse and word

or else a stupified
thoughtless universe
