I like to collect words.
stretchy feely tingly ones
words with history
scratchy and supple
words that tickle my thighs
words that feel like rubber on my lips
words that make me want to learn a new language
words that cause my heart to crack open my chest and make me bleed butterflies
I like words that free up the dusty barnacles of ignorance and excuses that make up my grief.
I like words that hold me tight and rock me to sleep.
words that make me want to cover myself in the galaxy and never let anyone bring me down.
