rope does not burn; it smokes





rope does not burn; it smokes
when doused, drenched and lit,
but a tongue can in fact, dipped or not,
yet, in its own right it's not tied in a knot
unless a word's swallowed—
withheld when hard pressed; whisper's
not words suppressed; audible—
urgently dressed in hiss or kiss—
exhaled; released in ardent breath;
veiled yet laced with clarion intent
as deliberately stressed.
