do animals think in words? if not, that's what i envy of them. because when i think, it's always in sentences, bringing up every qualm i've ever had with the English language.

(and so when i can't put something into words, it's like the thought never existed)

(and so much gets lost that way)

(and i suppose that is why poetry is so nice, because someone said "look! you don't HAVE to use sentences! or you can, whatever, i don't care")

(and more people need to turn poems into songs, because that rainer maria song using whitman is not enough)
