The Tongue

Is there anything more spectacularly
flexible than that prisoner of our mouth,
the tongue! Skate-boarders hammering down
on concrete slopes, surf-riders equally
the upward curve of breakers, not so coolly
as this slider between rows of smooth teeth
elude inevitability; to crown
it all, it makes the quantum leap to be
the engineer of sounds; in taste, provides
papillary skill; involuntarily
active for the most part, and therein most
proficient; but, of course, when one decides,
the skill transfers complementarily,
control's assumed, and hopefully not lost.
