slabs which totter. Mouths fill with pebbles to learn to speak,
speak in things down there and learn to speak about things, what
it is to speak about things, what it is when things speak,

slabs totter, buildings fall, bodies crumble, Mouths fill with
debris, mouths, Demosthenes, speak with debris against the roar
of cruise missiles -

within the roar of missiles, Demosthenes, as one speaks, here is
the roar, does it not sound, Demosthenes, like the roar of the
ocean?

does it matter, Demosthenes, if the dead cannot speak ("because
of" or "as a result of") their daemon ("because of an injury to
the throat" or "because their throat is torn [and therefore
they have no voice]") - and what would they have to say? ["and
who would say it"?] [perhaps a reference to the "death rattle"]

because who would say it?

who would say it, learning to speak?
