one day examining your [dialectic.]

i have worked your
borrowed words
over my tongue
i have them memorized.

would have blamed beatrice
if she turned up alive in a local bordello
and newton gravity
if apples fell upwards.

what i mean
is that words are turned mysteriously
against those that use them."

says the apple
both of us are object.)

is this your strange
complex way of saying
language is man made?

we knew that.

the question you ask is
what is this
integral human need
for the sense of communication
as to develop not one language
but many.

a vast
number of words that mean
an infinite number of things.

[the question is]

not whether north is north
but in which direction we are headed
and what we will find when we get there.
