words do not mean other words
except that they can

provide meaning to
those who don’t know what they mean
how mean people are

academies slip
slowly into the mainstream
ambiguity

applied to pages
labels are meant for canned food
sustenance to live

words only connect
with voices to intone them
we are who we are

what we owe to each other
