    A poem I think you should read (6)

    After the Alphabets
    W.S Merwin

    I am trying to decipher the language of insects
    they are the tongues of the future
    their vocabularies describe buildings as food
    they can instruct of dark water and the veins of trees
    they can convey what they do not know
    and what is known at a distance
    and what nobody knows
    they have terms for making music with the legs
    they can recount changing in a sleep like death
    they can sing with wings
    the speakers are their own meaning in a grammar without horizons
    they are wholly articulate
    they are never important they are everything
