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

I speak with passion
in each

I speak to you

I tell you
that I
believe in

I talk to the night
and speak aloud
your name

my tongue
finds the way to say

every atom
of my blood

is in that word

spoken to you
my words take on
new meanings

listening to me

what I say
takes on
new worth

and I say it

say it

to you
