Most of what passes for conversation is deigned to keep from having to say anything.
How much reflection goes into your conversations?
How much new ever comes out of them?
You may argue often,
But how much insight is gleaned?
How often do minds change?
How often do you follow worn paths to familiar destinations?
Going from the barn to the pasture,
And back to the barn?
Conversation is a cow path,
From nothing to nowhere and back,
Again and again,
