I Have Forgotten the Word

I have forgotten the word that
was on my mind that night,

the one that destroyed all categories
into which everyone must neatly fit.

I know there were natives present.
But everywhere one goes, it seems,

there are natives. What was I thinking
that has broken barriers down?

Is there a word that transcends all difference
and sets me on God’s ground, unafraid

yet unable to forget those people I was
filing away? Was it in a dream?

Reminder: The word is "within"
