big phrases and deep terms:
easily displayed they seem
as if, just by saying them,
we could breathe the meaning in.

losing garments in the face of spike,
their legacy a bare sound.
tales and myths of living life:
cure your soul! love, peace and light!
does lexicon stop where things get tough?
what becomes if certain words are left behind?
