Dilute down the alphabet

until the letters melt

and drip down 

our chins.

Let us spurt syllables

and call it clarity.

Let us learn to dance

on eggshell floors

and between sidewalk cracks.

Break down lines and loops

into grunts, groans,

clatter laughter

and fidgeting fingers,

quick nods.

Let us break down communication

into new age hieroglyphs

of strut chest, flutter lips,

and disorganized vowels.
