ON FUTILE DEVICES

It always starts the same
with your name
it has to
it has to because
it’s the only thing
that is true
because the thing
can never name itself
otherwise Neitzsche’s
would have been all
but forgotten–which
according to him
is the only way
to achieve truth
kind of a weird tautology
that is
kind of weird that we
make up names
and exclaim
this is truth!
this is the essence of this object!
Sufjan Steven’s has
this song that ends
with the line
words are futile devices
that I believe in my soul
to be the essence of
what I feel
is truth
which is
the only reason
I still try
to master it
your name
