Use your words (a poem)

Can’t live with them, can’t live without them…

Words—all words
in shades of bruise and black
Coffee cup rings
renderings round
in caffeine shots
and words—the words

actions in ink
black and blue and purple
paper and pixels—
no place for practicality
Emotions, energy
a purpose for everything

Grand design?
Not bloody likely
More like helter-skelter
higgledy-piggledy
hopscotch funk—
without the groove

But the words—
within me, the words
Words on the page
words in the world
Everything in words
and words for everything
