mary speaks

mary speaks an unknown sea
it spills out of her swollen sunburnt lips
like a cascading dribble of rhymes
it burns on its way out
stings its way down

it does not fall neatly at her feet
it is not contained
it splashes back against her
and sprays unwilling toes

she wipes her mouth clean
only to open up those lips
roll out her red carpet tongue
and speak it yet again

mary speaks
