Through The Lips

A voice.
You respond to
tone or mannerism,
breath exchanged in sound
for common words of
direction, or passion, decisions
and such, even
a simple grocery list.
A force
from the larynx, clear
and powerful, merges
with metrical signals
of the mind. Airwaves
shaping sense
and thought and
taking you back, or ahead.
A whisper,
enunciation, pronunciation,
from within and out
through the lips
shifting shadows, shaping
the images you see or read.
Is it the voice you respond to,
or is it the idea?
