The story happened
no matter how it was told
but we can tell it

in a better way
maybe to change the story
or to change ourselves

words are not language
the canvas inside the frame
speech made of body

for the listening
which no one can really hear
takes a part of us

to bring it to life
that part will never come back
it will be transformed

into different
not always for the better
but we can make sure

ourselves are better for it
