Hi Gary:

A very evocative poem! But..

> "Without language,we have no relationships.

What about early attachment relationships, which begin around 6 months
of age and earlier, between infants and adults -- would it be fair to say
that babies don't have relationshps with their parents?

> "In language we ... make love.


Might it be better to say that language is _a_ vehicle of relating,
but not the _only_ vehicle?

All the best,
Mike Mascolo
