Wal, shut my mouth!

Wal, shut my mouth!
(I hope you will get some meanin’ out
of these helpless words—they
are the only way I can think of
to reach to you on paper)
what I was thinking wisped away
in that instant when we heard
(and knew we each heard)
an echo of what one of us said
then ever’thin’ went still
I am left with an empty
head and a new sorta
inkling away in my noodling
all the goo between us is scraped away
so’s to see the ground beneath
is solid for a dancing path ahead
