Meaning What, Exactly?

Evasive voices
Begged for weasel words.
What does it mean for a word

To win? To replace others,
Spawn mass descendants in tongues
That haven’t been evolved yet?

We could say we were tracers,
The tracks of words like the tracks
Left by beetles under bark,

But nothing quite gets at us
Except us, and we can’t quite
Account for ourselves.

Evasive voices murmured.
Pressed hard the words dissembled.
