    In this segment of a poem, the character has become somewhat paralyzed and cannot speak well, and has also been instructed not to drink water but desperately wants some.

    Words slip around inside my mouth
    the way water would if there were any;
    if I could slosh it around and down me.

    话语像水一样在我的嘴里流转,
    如果口中有水的话;
    如果我能咂摸并且

    The final line has been the most challenging. Thanks for any help!
