I need a new vocabulary (a poem)

Starting out earlier than usual this morning…

I need a new vocabulary
a new lexicon
a new vernacular

a new way of framing my thoughts
a new way of expressing myself

The old model is no longer so comfortable
it constrains to the point
where I find myself
repeating myself
to unacceptable degrees

I need to find a new way of thinking
to do that
I need a new vocabulary
