"The words you speak become the house you live in."
"The fish trap exists because of the fish; once you’ve gotten the fish, you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit; once you’ve gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning; once you’ve gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. "

Meta-Poetics Vol. 3: Reworking Titles
The one where he / she breaks up with "ye"
Yet another unrequited love song
A piece about how dark and mysterious you can be
Protests harping on heartstrings of our common throng
Mourning for loss at end of road or while aborning
Laughter provided at somebody else's expense
Praising heroes; subjecting villains to scorning
Walking a fine line betwixt eloquence and pretense
To hell with it all, Poets are dead in the water!
Stagnating cesspools of ergodic absorption
Their egotistical irons close circuits with solder
Determenistic feedback loops give rise to distortion
New Hermeneutics are needed to break this old cycle
Wittgenstein's ladder will no longer suffice
Incorporate the whole gammut from somatic to psycho
Blaspheme every Meme - offer Self - sacrifice!
