Word Weary

Shhh

I’m tired of words—
I’ll be a whale who spouts and sounds
I’ll be an elephant who roars and spouts

Words are tired of me too—
They want to speak for whales
     elephants and evergreen trees
          who want to be heard.

You know I loved this. I am an old man now who really did this and that. Behind my words was action.
