Wonder if
words can
—like a knife,
a club,
like a
hard boot to a tailbone
wound someone
to their heart
leave it scarred

or

if words
can
—like a child’s giggle,
the fragrance of
a wild rose
fresh cookies
sighting a
lost/found lover

warm
fill
a heart

then

wonder what you’ve heard

what a murderer’s heard
and his judge said

then

tell me

can words change a life?
