Contributor Series 6: A Currency of Words
Words of Life
By Bobbie Troy

in the furious tide of thoughts
words are born
erupting like a child
from the womb
never to be yours again
but still having a semblance of you

you grow the words
and guide them
from infancy to maturity
then leave them for posterity

Bobbie Troy’s most recent poem to appear at vox poetica was Let’s Start Over (September 2010).
