When I count words

You won’t see the words I throw away
You won’t see the bin full of ideas and
broken thoughts
the words that said something in one way
and in one way something said else
another way
the twenty minutes that put those
two words together to best
translate the mind
When I count words
You don’t see the lifetimes, knowledge
wisdom, wrinkles, the ‘ten necessary references’,
the ‘let it sit for a few hours’ the ‘watch and learn’
the ‘shutup and listen’ the google and wikipedia, and (if you insist)
the news
When I count words
You don’t see the love felt, the lessons learnt to reach them
You can’t see all of its invisible infinite reasons.
