Some of us plainly 
cannot resist; 
we think 

that to speak a thing 
with passion 
and repeatedly 

is the most efficient 
way to feed our 
hunger for significance—

while others insist 
on that tack's 
exact opposite;

like hoarders, they 
the tiniest bits 

of fly-by-night 
language which chance 
to come near them. 

But of hunger 
of course, this is not
the reverse: their craving 

firstly, is 
to capture—and then 
after, to regurgitate.
