words levy power like

wizards casting spells in lore


words do take over

especially with nothing left


when everything has failed

and utterance remains


we are words

we are made of words


well we are not

though it can feel that way


do you know the secret

word that elicits gnostic will


do you know the word

that can heat a frozen spirit



inspired by recent posts of

melinda kuscera at in media res
