Words So Large

There are words so large
you can live in them.

Isn’t it a comfort to know
your fear
is not the biggest thing?

Always, always, if you listen,
a sound will form
around your fragile life.

You can move and breathe
within the dark, expansive
walls of this word.

You can feed
on the juice of its sound.
