where we wander
whether through wood or city street
the words call us to task
the very path
the way we walk
the slant of the sun we watch

the air thickens – – we breathe out
as we speak – -the world widens

so talk to me see what we can see
I’m willing to change my speech

action beyond mere acceptance

    Everyone speaks, more or less. And of course words are any symbol system we happen to use. we as the animals we are use symbols to ourselves and each other to explain ourselves and each other.
