More About Language

The Linguists:
uncovering roots of meaning hidden beneath the cacophony of voices
dragging their treasures through the pitfalls of convenience
and the structures are lost
tossed, squished, undermined.
still we pick through, piece together,
puzzling over what cannot fit but must to find
Looking through the weathered ages of language
obscure, twisted, rocky, tundra, knotty forest bark
our speech is still unfound.
