I know the toxin of words | by Antοnis

I know the toxin of words

I know the power of words,

I know the toxin of words.

They are not those that make theater boxes applaud.

Words like that make coffins break out

make them pace with their four oak legs.

It happens they are thrown out,

not printed, not published.

But the word gallops, its saddle girth tightened,

it rings through the ages and trains creep nearer

to lick... poetry's toil-hardened hands.

 

Untitled - Vladimir Mayakovsky
