atomically speaking

Inspired by the phrase ‘My tongue, every atom of my blood’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

I speak
aloud

I speak with passion
in each
utterance

I speak to you

I tell you
everything
that I
believe in

I talk to the night
and speak aloud
your name

my tongue
finds the way to say
you

every atom
of my blood

is in that word

spoken to you
my words take on
new meanings

you
listening to me

what I say
takes on
new worth

and I say it
again

say it
aloud

to you
