Grasp hitherto unknown sounds in the wilderness of contradictions. Become a hunter and pursue them in the rhythm of the concord until their true nature emerges through crackle and stomping. You can then pounce on them and catch them.
Lead your words into a circle dance. Be their shepherd and take good care of them. Sing with them in a new way. Then they shall take on meaning.
