A chink open

Look a bit further than the phrase
that is a chink open like the door
in its own way
just not touching the lock

what can be translated in thoughts
you can read on the face
sometimes an eye that blinks
maybe a little tic
just above the right corner of the mouth                                                   
or a tongue that quickly licks the lips

so that the last words
which were swallowed hasty
still are read

in the light that yawns
between the silence and the point
that closes forever.
