when i can't find the words-
they find me.
my little princes
my horses 
my ponies.

some of the words are polite
they invite themselves in
bringing such delightful  
and delicate offerings.
the others are not so humble
they storm the gates
they are wild and hungry things
in love with the trouble they make.

but i need each one
they are my odd medicine
sweet bittersweet salve-
love and poison.
