A new language just the ticket
beyond all polyglot translation
lucidly surpassing
the allusive je ne sais quoi
of haiku or imitation
no metaphors or kennings
transmission beyond koans
so just it transforms

I dream of a place so new
the merest hint of description
would be a mistake
the people and creatures
beyond all taxonomy
the food
if there be any
surpassing gastronomy
the sun and the shadows
described by the sound
of one clapping hand
as for my face
an absence of mirrors

In that new place
a new language
is spoken beyond earthly sounds
animal or vegetal
that unutterable place
known beyond all dispute
for its primal affinity
