I Love Words


Crevasse is a cool word
that cruises from my mouth.
Frenzied and flailing just flit off my tongue,
leaving me feeling fine.

I love to say the word tenacious
it makes my teeth tingle,
while archipelago causes me to gasp with astonishment
at my ability to articulate it at all!

I can’t go past the word ganglion
without getting goose bumps,
and I adore the words ultimatum, ulterior and ultramarine,
although I’d need a dictionary to understand them.

But it really doesn’t matter:
I just simply
