Inside out, stout ideas
and robust blustering,
through this well-lit box,
extraordinary measures

here's to your mind where these words now flow,
once removed from mine

no more oceanic
for the tongue wants to name all
and so we sink rather than swim

forgive me
there was no way 
for you to know...except for words

let's make beautiful language together,
forego the words
