I don't necessarily agree that words should last through the ages--
Not because they're not meaningful,
Not because they are falsely representative of
Threatened by extinction.
Words deserve to be rare.
And they should even die.
I think it is practical that when a young person needs a word,
Meadow or cupola
He should have to borrow it from another universe.
This language we speak should be seen as a river
Bending out of sight.
The very course of things seems to say,
I don't know where I am going.
I don't know where I'm taking you.
He should, at a sound, and when asked, say the two words
As if he had never been born.
