Mussitation

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






When you mussitate I can see your quips
Although inaudible,
I can read your lips

When you mussitate I can see your claims
Although inaudible,
I can spot your aims

When you mussitate I can see your tales
Although inaudible,
I can feel your wails

When you mussitate I can see your goals
Although inaudible,
I can hear your tolls

When you mussitate I can see your views
Although inaudible,
I can find your cues

*mussitate: to silently move the lips in simulation of audible speech.
