tongues for nations
languages and necessary expression
tongues for translation
interpreting someone else’s body
tongues for tracing and getting lost
tongues for finding the truth
tongues for Spirit to take over
tongues for loss of control
for the things you didn’t want to say
the languages you still want to learn
tongues for the lies, lies, lies and more lies
of a future i can psychically see
tongues of expansion
and infinite states of mind
resonances of other realms i can’t physically reach but my tongues…
tongues that open the gates of heaven
tongues that speak life
into me, into you,
tongues of uncertainty
tongues of dishonesty
tongues that tell me never to go back
there’s so much forward with the tongues, just use the tongues.
tongues of a closed throat centre, tongues that still need to come out
come out blues, come out!
tongues that command and renounce where’s your power?
i said come out blues, come out!
