Wor(l)ds


there’s an entire world in a single word,
a history, both individual, 
as well as collective,
expectations, feelings, 
future,
a living, breathing, evolving
world,
in just one word

combine those words into sentences,
written, spoken, demonstrated, 
shared,
and worlds can be merged,
if we so choose,
if we also receive, compassionately,
from other
worlds 

but those worlds can just as easily
be torn apart
with a single word,
sentences causing irreparable,
incomprehensible 
damage 

words at war
worlds at war

why?
