Food for thought

I eat words.

Devouring morsels of intellect

with the cutlery of my mind,

absorbing their succulence.

Rolling them around with my tongue,

my mouth-watering with their weight.

I move letters like chess pieces,

displaying them as art on a pedestal.

They are individual yet whole:

Form and function,

almost arrogantly literal

yet multifaceted at once.

I crave this platter of beauty.
