The Specific Gravity Of Words

Invisible, they waft through
the atmospheres, evanescent
yet ubiquitous. Weightless,
they potentially possess the
gravest relative density
on earth.

For when read, or heard,
every thought and emotion
of everyone who listens or reads
becomes attached to every word.

Words thus thicken and widen
and swell, dragging
the soul away from the
seamless sky and far, deep away
into the dark, worried tombs
of our tired present earth.

Imagine, for a moment:

If birds could talk,
how, on earth, would they
be able to fly?
