overdubbed


sometimes
my words
don’t match up
to what i think

like a badly dubbed
foreign movie
seen late at night

i struggle
and waver

hem
and haw

shifting from one foot
to another
awkwardly

and yet
when i write

the phrases come out
complete, and pure

in a wave of beauty

universally understood

if only the world
could slow down
for my words

give me a chance
to roll my brain
around my heart

then i could finally
say
all the things i
feel
that stir me inside

before you walk away

before the end of the day . . .
