Concerning Expression

Concerning expression

What cannot be expressed by taboo cannot be expressed by people in crisp, white suburban houses. What else cannot be expressed is like that which animals and babies cannot express. What exists in ticket lines and ATM transfers. Drug stores and allergy medicine. Before grief. The cacophony of the zoo, as illustrated in a child’s picture book. Some character climbs over or under the bars to commune with a lion. The lion cannot express its yearning to negotiate with the parent reading the book to her child who cannot express the book in words. Look, look. We have no choice. The parent expresses in sex in spite of herself. Inconsequentially, rejoice.
