A Poem by Jay Frankston

Pregnant Words

Pregnant words
hanging from the line
waiting to be picked,
sorted and arranged,
sentenced and given meaning.

Pregnant words
like ripe red grapes
hanging from the vine,
picked, crushed, fermented
and encased in a barrel
of premium quality wine
to be swirled in a glass
making you giddy,
absent minded and inebriated.

Pregnant words
squeezed into
a light headed poem.
