Meaning

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

Meaning

Meaning--
Is it from gleaning?
Is it fine tuning
Or patient pruning?

No matter how meaning
Is stated--
Over-- or under--rated,
It remains
Desire in human brains.

I admit I'm an asshole. Now, can we get back to the conversation?

Or:


" Meaning.......

== == == == == == == ????? == == == == == == ????????
........

desire in human brains"


This is eclectic , not that the other rhythmic lines should be considered structurally unnecessary,

but to point to my own take: that the late William Burroughs replied, when asked about Ezra Pound's intimation of the equivocation between the biochemical substance inherent in both :seminal fluid and the cerebral cortex

He said he was not familiar with it. ( even though it has become cliché to talk of seminal narratives)

I lost my only copy of Ezra Pound,'s " Cantos" , but I could swear to it being in there.


Please don't take this,as irrelevant, only an old frontier into a road seldom if ever traveled, the the last frontier, that struck me as if intended covers for drawing some architectural design .


Reminds me of what someone implied recently about structural drawing, and then erasing that on second thought.
But then, meaning and it's intended revision , the next day, even before the paint dried, causes more problems then forming any clear message.



Now I am compelled to delete, but almost an equally forceful desire works against it, so I will leave it.



But this was an overly impressionistic take, that probably wasn't meant to elicit, so will comment with the following
