NDJ:8 Jill Newberger

In the Chair and on the Couch

What we have
are words
pauses
a cock of the head
a gesture of the hand
a smile
a faraway gaze
a glimmer in the eye
a ladder of intonations
going up and down
in syncopation
to our beating hearts.

What we have
are words
transporting us
to distant places
where we have traveled before
and never set foot
moving
while sitting
dreaming
imagining
peering into
that space
where
words sprout wings.
