Words – A Poem

The toy thing of poets, weapons of orators, the stuff of prose and tales

The articulation, classification, compartmentalization and domestication of the abstract,

Of the sensuality in awareness and perception of the fabric of interconnections in our life, of the happenstance in our place and time, of emotions,

Rising from the depths of the unknown psychological and biological pasts, histories unknown and yet – experienced in that shared space called language, while so limited to culture, place of birth, space and time.

Contingencies upon which, and through which, our mind may escape the bondage of the now,

Those very same contingencies which allowed that thought to emerge.
