Signifier

Here we are well-seated.
We sit well with the whiplash
waking our necks to the throb throb
shock of modernity.

So I have an indistinct payload,
so what? Learn to read between the lines.
These passe expressions
only hinder the cause.

Why do your lips wear the gauze
of humdrummery, through which
only dead language can pass?
Let this teeming indescribable mass

mean something. Let that meaning
break this burdensome rock
that now sits smugly
upon the laborer’s back.
