ROOT

Root that attaches
what is knowledge
before you knew it
source, deep origin
morpheme underlying
derivational paradigms
inflections, series of
harmonies summed
fundamental tone
as we begin to grow
fixed life established
extending radical self
until we yank it up
come to grips, shake it
away from its task
embedded system
naked authenticity
dissected psyche sings
within your thoughts
struggling with words
to hear its song at least
signing, sure to please.
