Poetry and the Vision of Thought

I pour out these words

to describe the state of being
in my head
before I can make them form
the language that you all are speaking
Hours Days weeks at a time they build up
till over washing into this flood plain
of poetry
before fermenting, bubbling, then
coalescing into words that make sense
or seem to
Until I realize I’ve misunderstood your language again.
