“The Pulse of the Words” by Ali Znaidi


The Pulse of the Words

Symbolic words indulgent
beyond those ruby lips
which are eating themselves.

The warmth of the cadence
in each lisp orchestrates a version of the truth,

{a clip}

a deep hermeneutics of indifference
glittering in the glossy lips.

The way words move themselves
almost w/ the moment of the slip of the tongue itself
creates a prosody of endless paradigmatic
shifts & disrupts.
