The mouth is a sock puppet inside the skull.
It peers out between hedges of teeth.
Your voice is the hand, the puppet's backbone.
The mouth is a channel for sound,
and sound evacuates all manner of meaning.
Throat, jaw, lips, teeth, these are
the mouth, stacked and intrinsically harmonious.
The mouth, a member of phylum
chordata, a small room out of which ideas take wing
like passenger pigeons released.
