Understanding 101

BY: Tanja Cilia

Lost amongst my acres of knowledgeWUnderstanding101
and mounds of books
I'm a mere academic,
Trying to make sense of life and love.

I own a mellifluous mountain
of meandering meaningless words
and I mouth them
when the moment arises.

I cannot tell the difference between
patois, idiolect, jargon, dialect,
idiom, argot, slang, and gobbledygook,
or colloquialism, waffle, claptrap.
I care not for ephemeral sounds;
"I'm sorry; I don't speak your vernacular."
I pray for someone to understand me.
