Okay, let me try this
whole thing again—

What are the words
that formed the world?

But an ocean in my mind
keeps washing

away what I know,
and then,

washing it all right
back in

such that—just

as I

most of the things
I see on this beach

are so small 
and so similar 

that I can't
notice each one,

I can only
name them all.

Except, I sort of
suspect, for one

or two,
which are far

too huge
to call

at all—let alone
to use.
