Beware the bearers of silence

for they are showing  you a strength in

carrying weighted words

Words- nestled in a voiceless box

that rearrange themselves

but are in no hurry to be released

Words that lie in a languid stupor

-patient enough for their bearer

to pick (like choice fruit)

the right ones
