Whenever sound meets image in a perfect balance to give the same message, you can’t help it but love this poem!

Susan Daniels Poetry

the flips & turns those tongues curl
to shape words/hit a spin
leave me reeling
& dazzled–
that’s why talk is cheap.
it is fast & shiny
& does not wear well;
quickly-sewn  seams  split
under pressure.

rhetoric twists perception
until sheep salivate like wolves
& wolves bleat & wear wool
but still smell of dog–
we won’t know which is which
until we see teeth

& by then
we are already bitten
