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
Horse
Doggie
World

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

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

In the beginning was the word.
