find the words. 
Here. I’ve picked them out
put them in a tasseled drawstring 
velvet bag.
Here.

Like scrabble letters.
You go first –
Hand in, blind.

What do you read?
I see your mouth move, but your eyes
are on the board. the meaning
is worth less
than the points; lost on
you.

I just want to
seize the tassels, shake the words out,
ruin the game
why won’t you see this is a sentence 
I can never find the words to
say.
