vous plait. The names of states weekdays months: minnesota /
wednesday / february. She rolled. Words in her mouth.
Swallowed (full.) Form consonants vowels. Sound of letters
unfolding: as soon as possible / university / regarding. She
read. The shadows pronounced. Lists of emancipated.
(Words.) Language was. A river she did not wish to shorten.
She spoke. Sentences aware. How they took silences.
(Breath.) The next. Word inside her. (Body.) A map she
found. Her way. (Home.)
