A silent threat just
Lifted off the tongue, as
Spoken words intimidated by the ghost
Get softer in volume and softer
A silent contagion
Just waiting to spread,
To viral the spoken words until they, too,
Weakly grasp the thin ice in the air,
Hoping it won’t melt before they’re carried,
Far enough to be heard.
