NaPoWriMo 2018 – #14 The Problem of Language

 

Vietnamese_Collage

 

The impossibility of tone

“Sweet. Candy. The difference?”

What timidity prevents

“Adjective+Noun. But if I have two adjectives?”

If the noun is a feeling

If the adjective betrays

“Call. Speak, Say. Give examples”

What is not confessed

The meanings of silence

“Now, all speaking stops”

What can be misread

“Why a dog barking up a tree?”

“and where to find red herrings”
