Axiomatic

I sometimes look up

the meaning of words ,

words that I already know

words that are well acquainted with me ,

my use of them has

a purpose a plan and outcome ;

I’d rather not waste them

nor I feel do they gain

much satisfaction knowing that

my making use of them

might be somehow construed

as frivolous or trivial ;

I sometimes look up

the meaning of words ,

not out of any doubt as

to recalling their precise meaning or use ,

but rather to reassure myself

of how well stocked my arsenal is .
