Two Words at Once

picture a language where
every  l e t t e r
represents one single
separate
sy lla ble.

and each letter could be
combined
with every other letter
to form a new symbol
so that the
total number
of symbols
was the number of letters
times itself.

and the symbols stood for
the two syllables
comprising them
being spoken
at once.
so that instead of just
writing a
word
you could write
two words
at once.

words within words
telling tone
and underlying intent
and pronunciation
and nuance
and all thought
becomes
clear
in the page.

harder to write         easier to express
harder to learn         easier to want
easier to lie              easier to tell the truth

harder to tell the difference
harder to care

and would there be
subtext
even to this?
would
something
lurk
deeper
a third level
down?

moving in those
perfect words
like the
vibrations
your throat
makes
without your
permission
