“how long shall I carry these words…”

 

DSCN6728 (11)

How long shall I carry these words
in my mouth
these profane and bitter proclamations
thrusting alongside others,
the ambrosial ones
hived in wildflower honey

How will they fall
when these budded lips
bloom
will they eject in a spray
of search and destroy
or trickle out
soaked in vengeful intent

I think I will chew on them
just a little while longer
savor them, suck the venom
right out
then swallow them, deep
their release, hurting no one
but me
