Words have weight, just like stones. No one understands their significance, if used too lightly. That’s why the words were written in Braille. They want to be incomprehensible to the majority. They can be understood only by a small circle of people: the blind and those who know this alphabet. Among the selected words are those most worn out: love me, believe me, forget me, etc. There is a metaphorical transposition from the weight of the stone to the weight of the word, so that the word, imprisoned in the material to prevent its dispersal, takes on the weight of the object itself.
