I am speaking with the language from the soft languish marrow (meaning you know what I am going to say; you know I am going to say (stay) “between words”) This is not between us, lover, this word is not between us—I am going to say we are between the word. Stay. There is no single sensible answer: What counts as a word. What counts is a word. 171,476 words. Over half these words (of all the words) are nouns, a quarter are adjectives a seventh verbs (meaning quartered adjectives) (there is no rest!) the rest is made up of exclamations, conjunctions, prepositions, suffixes, etc. That is a sensible answer. And of these figures, lovers, between moments are always between words. A sense for different parts (such as nouns and adjectives) (such as a single answer) of speech.
