Scene 2, Part 2

He referred to style as some visual Esperanto.

“Lo!”, he exclaimed. “Cross-cultural negotiation can, nay must be conducted via hat and scarf and sock. Only one thousand people may be native to style globally. Its codes are understood by many, but spoken fluently by few.”


I replied: “Style, like Esperanto? Easy to learn, sir? Nay! Free from politics? Pah! Auxiliary? Hardly.”

His pseudo-cosmopolitanism was dripping all over my millefeuille. So I took his “visual Esperanto” and raised him one:

“Style is demiurgic manuscript”.

And then all that was left was the hollow thwang of increasingly complex analogies and the foreboding doom of Malapropisms.
