Builds in cascades of sound – phonemes,
by feeling little bits of life fly off of your tongue
where open fields find rest on hallowed oath, an appeal to the people,
notwithstanding the people, assuming only the best for those
who be so gathered. The speech expresses
the significance of that, that the moment
in its utterance, for the speaker
and for the listener,
is inevitable.
