“Word Supreme” by Clint Keller

What I’m saying right now is meaningless –
because a word spoken alone is a word spoken in vain.

Like a tree falling in an empty forest,
I may as well never make a sound.

But when these words reach you –
moments, days, years from now –

Meaning will be born.

She will be our child, a unique creation of
our collective experiences pulled together for
a single purpose –

to say, “I love you.”


Clint Keller is a writer and film director living in Portland, OR. His work in the horror genre earned him a place among Variey’s “Rising Stars” in 2015, making him one of only 110 filmmakers selected.
