If You Were To Eat Your Words
If you were to eat your words how would they taste
would you swallow them slowly, without haste ?
If you were to nibble on the letters of your poem
would they satisfy your soul like a sweet Shalom ?
If you were to feast on a whole entire page of nouns
would you turn into a smile, or a big upturned frown
If words were edible then I'd make malice avoidable
and I would never write anything mean or unlovable
If you and I were sensitive poets we'd write real good
so everything we'd eat would taste like jello not wood
is it understood ?
