Conference Librettos

Popular words burgeon,

they are kinetic

They bounce, spin, ricochet

in language bubbles,

They swell with self-importance

until they burst

Their pompous delusion

dissipates, evaporates

 

A new expert

blows their own word bubbles,

the contours of old words realign

But,

ideas remain the same,

dispersed froth rises, ruptures

and falls limp,

merely smears surfaces
