Poem 215 – Questions About Words

Questions about words

Sometimes when I say a word out loud
over & over
it stops making sense at all
becomes a slew of sounds
my tongue litters out & my brain
leaves on the ground a verbal garbage

Is there a word for this?
When a word stops being a word & becomes a
soundscape?

Certain words just do not stay learned

Comitt
Comitted
Comittment

The m’s & t’s never go where they belong

Do you think it means something that I don’t know how to
Comitt?
Wait… committ
Errr commit?
