Where did Wednesday go?

Sentence Length

She was never sure how long
they should be.
or really really long ones that went on and on and on.

Teachers kept telling her that
exciting words were very important
ambitious; simple not good enough.

Reaching for the dictionary
she wondered where these words
would come from, words kept slipping away
between the urge to speak
and when they came out.

talk talk too much
listen, really listen
try it
        and see what you hear.
