Word Play

by Kate Zimmerman

There's an eager emptiness
In all the words of violence
In all the fearful desperateness
In perfect imperfection

There's a sorrow sanctity
In all the world's dark vanity
In all the broken sanity
In perfect imperfection

There's a lowly loveliness
In all the words of humbleness
In all the poignant painfulness
In perfect imperfection
