The Taste of Words

  The Taste of Words
bitter and stinging
soft and sweet
so big they choke
or so little that
they are almost missed
the taste of words
as they pass my lips
 

library, books at the Missouri Governor's Mansion, Goodnight Moon

 
This short poem was inspired by an #orjay prompt on Twitter.
What words are you tasting today?
