If Words Covered You Like Clothes
If words covered you like clothes,
Would the words be just words,
Or would they be in sentences, and
If so, would they be short or long?
This is not a spelling test, and
No answers would be wrong.
Would you add extra syllables
To cover your arms and legs
To protect yourself from the cold,
Or would the words disappear
From your memory as you get old?
Perhaps you would need special
Ones to shield your skin from rays
That shine down on sunny days.
Would the letters fall to the ground
After the clouds begin to rain,
Scrambling the letters from everyone
Like a word puzzle that went insane?
What if words covered you like clothes?
I think only you would know.
