Words on a Page

Words on a page
Are but translated
And filtered ideas
Expressed as sketches
That originated as cell messes.
By creators. 

And yet
Words on a page
Must be translated
And face filtered understandings.
By readers. 

So that
Words on a page
Might, just maybe
Ignite
Indict 

Inspire
Invite
Invest
Implore
Celebrate
Coerce
Communicate
Commiserate
Condemn
And corrupt.
For livers. 

Words on a page
Direct us
Demand our paused respect
Challenging each utterance
To continue the Ur story.
For others. 

Words on a page
Hold the past
Mirror the now
Warn the future.
For all. 

Words on a page
Typically come
Without notice
Or invitation.
For thinkers. 

Those words on a page.
By creators.
By readers.
By livers.
Those words on a page.
