The Meaning of Meaning
- THE MEANING OF MEANING
Without words would our thoughts
really rush about madly
like irritated ants
or is that just the kind of thinking
words would talk us into
in order to justify their existence?
Words can chatter all they want about
but never actually become
the truths they do but describe
Naming implies a certain falsification
Every noun is another metaphor
What if your name was an embrace?
Some people say language is
a volcano of ash & not of fire
that hacks instead of pierces
What if the meaning of wet
was a bucket of water
poured over your head?
