I was quiet

I almost spoke today, I almost made some sensinsible assertion but the words escaped and I could only trace the momentary scent of failing phrases as it trailed an exhalation pardoned from the participles it’d moored, parts of arguments unraveled so their antecedents had no introduction and the point of what I’d hoped to say became contingent on the whims of winds that simply lifted syllables and took them as their own. I guess the lesson here, if one there is, which isn’t certain, is that words I’ve only borrowed for a moment won’t be fettered by the innuendos I’ve a tendency to mold, and furthermore the more I focus them the more that they’ll elope and leave my point to join the others stuck in traffic waiting for translation but not making any sense.
