Here, where you all are, language is an accessory to bodies lying in the street, prone in government rooms, bloated in the waterways. Or language is an accessory to the refutation of bodies lying etc. This too will pass as search vessels in the delta pass for smuggling operations bringing illicit food to refugees being autocued for media appearances. What commerce would you with us all. What coverage can you offer for coastal breach, aid refusal, for the taut sinews and caught breath of seated uprisen monks.
