Phonetic Ambiguity

I have known you for so long
I can recite you
Like the alphabet
Each phoneme so familiar
I feel no need to wonder
What comes next
Having traveled
That space between
Where your A begins
And your Z stops
So often
I am convinced
That I could navigate it
With my ears closed
But just when
It seems like
The sequencing
Of your system
Is set
You change things up
And I am overwhelmed
With the crashing
Of your consonants
The articulation
Of your lateral liquids
And the vibration
Of your long
