In the Beginning (2020 NaPoWriMo #14)


Beginning, signifier and sign,
Point, word, again, word, again, wor.
In the beginning was
The word

Incantations under my breath

Now, joining the others as enchanted as I,
As obsessed with describing, as I,
Searching for the right

One true sentence.
Metaphor, synonym, synechdoche fail.
Straining for the right

In the beginning was the word.
