The unspoken language of Poets

People speak many languages,
languages spoken by other people,
from other lands where
the other people speak
the same words,
in a world
where few men can be
understood.

Poets speak the language
no body speaks,
but hears—
without ears;
the poet speaks, Feel

received
in flutters
tears,
pulse,
and held breaths—

the language man’s body
was born knowing
how to understand
everything.

Poets escape words altogether:
they jump inside
of the listener’s chest
to sit
with their hands on the other’s heart,
saying
nothing
at all.
