The Nature of Words by a Man who Frequents Dictionaries



Words uttered with great tales to follow

proliferate, become stock, and spread


And then, seamlessly

become entries

and these entries are brief, succinct


When I press definitions unto my lips

unto my mind, unto myself

I consider them with care

I treat them as newborn children, and do my best

to provide them with everything a word needs

But I know that their history surpasses my frail efforts that

they will mean, someday, that which dictionaries cannot describe

My lettered children, I grieve

for any note or chord played to your credit

that did not intend as you would
