Tip-of-the-tongue Phenomenon by Ali Znaidi

Tip-of-the-tongue Phenomenon

You think it’s sugar at the tip
of the tongue. I agree.

Sugar sketching cupcakes on the
skyscape.

A mirage yielding real water.

Asphyxiated aspirations
re-animated.

Inside my brain, broken images
spackled.

& dream tastes sweet,
though I’m still under the tip-of-the-tongue
phenomenon.
