A grammar à propos of nothing

About us
This line tells you
what we want you to know

about this line of business
the business of which
is the mind alone

and it tells how things rest
in a jumbled order
like the pronunciation of English

But further it speaks of
resounding words
presented on behalf of

revenants and figments
of disorderly souls
Announcing our distinction from the rest

we wish you to understand
that poems are but dreams
riddled with words
