Speak Slower, draft no. 2

People have been telling me

my whole life

to speak slower, more clearly


I have always felt the need to squeeze

all the words I wanted to say

into a space the size of a floss tin


If I am speaking slowly

to you


then you will know God has appeared

Only God can make a fast speaker slow

(He healed the mute as well, you know.)
