Three steps to Pentecost

Silence intimidates

breaks complacence

with inconsolable soundless shrieks

that terrorise

strip back courage to a foetal vulnerability.

 

ii

Gathering

waiting

the wind disturbs

then tongues burn with words

that turn

senselessness to meaning.

 

iii

The fire licks

the tongue trips

over unfamiliar formulations

of syllables

that make a sentence with words

that sound absurd

except to those who hear their own parlance.
