Well, we shall sift him.

Like flour for a cake
Like gold from a stream
Shake all the little grains from one space to the next.
We shall shake his shoulders and his words will fall from him –
either in little soft piles that call out to be touched
or the sand will fall out, leaving little shiny bits behind in the pan
or maybe both –
little piles of flour, topped with gold.
