Hierarchies of Names

Exquisite requisite
pushed from the circle
of your own awareness
thought language
language language

English trained brain
lacks a Chinese inner narrative
outer objects classified
in orders of magnitude
hierarchies of names

Your mind can consider
objects for which
you don’t know the names
language-less,
a step down in classification

Proper noun to noun to nounless
images flashing in the skull–
a thing removed from narrative,
a feeling peeled of words examined,
still dancing on the stage of consciousness

Daily poetry postings for your perusal. Scraps of intelligible thought Frankenstein stitched into a fabulous existential quilt. Feel free to talk poetry or philosophy with me--always interested in conversation and creation. > Warpdarkmatter@gmail.com
