People want someone to sympathize with them, so they don't say anything that other people don't seem to understand. But the poet says that it may suppress the frustration inside of them as an extra and then erase themselves. Their meaningless words are proof that those people has lived their own life. "I want to meet various kinds of people and laugh, saying, “I don’t know what you're talking to.”" From "Your Excuse Is The Best Art."
