In the university of words.
The writing emporium falls into disarray
When the writer steps outside its confines.
Speaking to each other in their own voice
Words discuss loudly –
Should we co-operate?
Though they should be aware of the consequences
No intelligible sound.
The writer steps back inside, bows his head
Declares in civil tones – I am here
Words prostrate themselves – submission.
