Words

by Richard Tornello


It’s always been about words.
Words, hemlock words.
Words, out of the barrel of a gun words.
JEDGAR collected word, file space being cheap.
History:
Constitution and Torah words to live by.
Word for music, lyric words.
Fill my head; make me rattle my brain.
Nothing else matters.

Finis.
