Language Liquidity [Free Verse]

language is liquid;
 meaning meanders.

 in the long-run,
  meanings are meaningless,
    untethered and adrift 
      in an ocean of possibility.

[political words' meanings 
   don't drift, but tumble with
      whiplash violence through
         a desert of the possible.

 But, predictably, the first variation
    of a political word is the exact
      opposite of its original meaning.]
