Ordinary language is all right.
One could divide humanity into two classes:
those who master a metaphor, and those who hold by a formula.
Those with a bent for both are too few, they do not comprise a class.
'… the wretched task / Of telling things I ought rather to ask'
'Darkthrone is for all the evil in man.'
'An experience is as much distinguished from other experiences—in which other things are experienced—as it is from the rest of life in which "nothing" is experienced.'
An eloquent image: a closet, half-empty.
Risky arguments, Gadamer, cherries in a bag.

I think it might be a joke.
But they have a lot of coffins for it to be a joke.
