After dinner, Paw did dishes
while Beast talked to her mother
on the phone. Then they sat down

to talk. Now Goat, Paw said,

the language of meaning, and
the language of symbols. One is

the real thing; the other just stands
for something else. One you hear
recognition, a slur; the other, syllables.

from GOAT lies down on Broadway. For more info see here.
