Second Hand Words

These words,
not mine,
collocated together:
clumsy
inadequate
shuffled pack of cards;
mere shadows
of living
experience and feelings;
broken metaphors
stuck together
with duct tape
recycled,
renewed,
resurrected
with power
to affect
through eyes, in ears
with no taste,
no smell,
no matter.

  1. Battlescarred, worn, battered, or bright and shiny new,
    words are are the only mouthpiece we by which we share
    our internal and historical heartscapes of identity beyond the visceral and sensorial images we share in movement music and art… for all they hand down, they are never really second hand at all… lovely stuff.
