the written word
just like the spoken word
take my word
is not always
imperatively meaningful
or an enhancer
of utilitarian knowledge

it is capable of
distilling the mind
more often than not
with misguidance
and can also
stunt its growth

but then
an enlightened
refined thought
when spread with wings
of spoken or written words
can bring within one's grasp
the meaning of gravity
Platonic proximities
or distances

not to forget
the chances are
can raise a storm
as well as

perplexity is
to choose
or be chosen
