we organize our beliefs?
The more we say them, the more marshmallow they sound.
Do we believe in them any more?

Center for X
Where can I use wild words to say what I mean,
to find a new divine?
to imagine a difference.

Language is clunky.
My favorite words no longer describe. I know them too well.
What happens when the cause that martyred my grandma becomes my research interest?
Everything is sliced and packaged,
and I have no words
Except relevant experience.
