Weighty Syllables

 

 

 

 

 

I hoarded weighty syllables—

And all the words I said were light.

Viewing imaginary skulls,

I hoarded weighty syllables

Inside a soul whose gods were gulls

On empty seashores.  Cold that night,

I hoarded weighty syllables—

And all the words I said were light.
