Delicious

Go on, taste a word.

Linger on each tingling syllable,

Lick the velvet of vowels,

Twist your tongue round the gristle

And crunch of consonants.

Let your mouth ooze with the juice

Of sounds, let it

Bite each beat.

Relish resonant rhythm, and sip

The silences

That cleanse the mouth of meaning.

Go on, taste a word.

  1. I like it!!!,…..in spite of it not rhyming. I found it very expressive (is that even a word?), and the description of the crunching and gristle, juices, etc is quite revolting, and intriguing at the same time.
    I pictured word eating Zombies!.
