My, How the Words Rushed By!

Though they came at me
they would not stop.
“You will not pay attention,”
they said. “You have been attending
one stopping at the hospital,”
they taunted. “Have you no respect!?”
They arrived and fled in one motion.
I caught and held one a moment,
but it was “Rushed”
and would not give even
its present tense.
“How can you attend
our vowels,” I was told,
“When all your thought is on
a proper noun stopping at the hospital.”

Then Rushed rushed away.
