incremental
amphibious
momentous
miniature
albatross
hullaballoo
foppish
lardycake
avuncular
smithereens
words between
underneath
just beyond
other words
words words words
all the way down
a name of a thing
we take as a
bona fide
a characterization
we take for 
character
but beyond
the mouth feel
and mind grab
there is 
no thing
no name
no form
no sight, no sight consciousness
no sound, no sound consciousness
no suffering, no ending of suffering
no birth, no death
no being, no non-being
useful
            and abused
beautiful
            and harsh
transported on a 
magical carpet
of words
gone now
gone
to the other shore
fat crows
in the picklewood
skedaddle!
