Who Cannot Speak

Who cannot speak
has no need to learn.

You look for a new word-
today it’s unclear
which word it is.

You must wade
through a sea of words
to arrive in yourself.
Then alone, forgetting all speech,
return to the world.

Speak as solitude speaks,
with unutterable mystery.
-Srečko Kosovel
