words

in a way
i consider myself
a connoisseur of words
and i am constantly amazed
at how the same
twenty six letters
can combine
in so many different patterns
forming love letters
and death threats
i don’t know
if this is a common thing
but I have always had my favorites
words I like
because of the way
they taste in my mouth
ethereal
and muse
are sweet and linger
on my tongue
but i have found nothing
that compares to the word
baby
as it rolls off your tongue
in a hoarse whisper
directly into my ear
