Balancing Act

They slither out through gritted teeth.
Vowels and consonants turning themselves sideways
to fit through the tight spaces.
Escaping the confines; formed in the rolls and creases
of the brain.

Worthless conversation leading nowhere.
Words suspended on high wires;
balanced on strings tight with tension.
They inch their way across the divide;
no safety net to catch them.

Falling from open mouths
they shatter as they hit the ground.
A’s and E’s; yes’ and no’s bursting on impact.
Crystal shards of verbal glass;
non-tempered it splits the soles of feet.

Leaving red footprints in the wake;
grinding them to dust.
