In these moments I hate language. I hate what words are like, I hate the idea of putting these preformed gestures on the tip of my tongue, or through my lips, or through the inside of my mouth, forming sounds to approximate something that's like a cyclone, or something that’s like a flood, or something that’s like a weather system that’s out of control, that's dangerous, or alarming . . . . It just seems like sounds that have been uttered back and forth maybe now over centuries.
