Eat your words, raw,
Chew on your thoughts,
Spit them out collected.
Instincts taste sweet on your tongue,
But they'll turn bitter while young,
Choke on your words before they're said.

Really nice! I have a big mouth and my tongue doesn't seem to want to connect to my brain sometimes. Everytime I'm about to blurt something out, I'll remember your poem!
