Food for Thought-Reading Greek

Reading Greek

How can I say,
what’s on the page,
I see the words,
tiny Times New Roman birds,
I hear their sounds,
contained in this cardboard ground,
speaking syllables across time,
Calling me,
put the vowels together,
let the consonants be un-tethered,
feel the words as a song,
in your mouth, they belong.

–Richard Bryant
