Selected

word-reading
the chemical reaction
reconfigures molecules
produces offspring

word-whispers
from muses unseen
transform the silence
create the base

word-choosing
and vertebrae align
along the spine,
breath rises straight and clear

word-writing
the pen rests
in a left finger hollow,
this adapted scar
