Speaking in Tongues By Abigail Pearson

BRIGHT RED

Saliva dripping from

Tongue to Tongue

We are speaking in

Tongues

We are speaking

A

New language

Known only to god

We are speaking

Holy words

On each other’s mouths

Rubbing tongues

Back and forth

Learning each other’s

Holiness

The holy spirit guides

My tongue to yours

And he blesses

Our comunion

The father and the son

Could do no better than us

In speaking words of prophecy

And on our tongues

Black gold glittering

We pass a chalice

We pray “heaven help us”

And then we kiss some more.
