The Servitude Of Words

Muted words linger in limbo imprisoned between many leaves bound together in the darkness of a poet’s tried thesaurus. Their alphabetic existence is but an endless servitude whose individual meanings chosen and together sequenced for the glory of the poet. The many verses read aloud gives each utile word a voice and continues till completion. Then darkness returns once again as the reference book is closed.
