LEXICOGRAPHY

Once contact
Replaces labels
– Like a costume
– Like a mask
Fall away

For why need
One name or other?

Ill-judged attempts
To define or
Describe

For shame: betrayal
Of such an intimacy
Or such unwarranted
Self-aggrandisement

Gratitude and mystery
Sprout soaring wings
Escape the net of words
