Mother of Tongues

Standard

Mother of Tongues

 

The pain is a message

that you can ignore

at your own peril

But speaking to you

in the language of touch,

in such an insistant voice,

is Sacred Sentience,

mother of tongues,

she that suffers us

is licking our wounds

while telling us so loudly

that our being here matters

and requires our urgent attention.
