- Me: "I wanna dedicate my life to languages"
- Me: *puts minimal effort into actually learning languages*
Do you ever see a building and know it was something else before? I just drove past a former Wawa, and I knew it was a Wawa, by the faux stone face and shape of the roof, and shitty parking lot.
At a deep level, changes in a language are threatening because they signal widespread changes in social mores. At a level closer to the surface they are exasperating. We learn certain rules of grammar and usage in school, and when they are challenged it is as though we are also being challenged. Our native language is like a second skin, so much a part of us we resist the idea that it is constantly changing, constantly being renewed. Though we know intellectually that the English we speak today and the English of Shakespeare’s time are very different, we tend to think of them as the same—static rather than dynamic.

I tell myself that I’ll know when it’s right
that there will be someone new
and when he gives me his hand,
I will finally relax mine
from the fist I’ve been holding it in
but I know myself better than this
I am vicious
and in my nightmares,
he walks away with bite marks
and blood dripping from his fingers
