What Does This Mean?

a: Aphorism ~
b: moping into a wild fire

What: "The aphorism is an ancient form, knitting together in a single stitch contradictory emotions, mindsets, or concepts. With each new word, the prose shifts toward the contra. Swinging from action verb to direct or indirect object is like moping into a wild fire, is like speaking to a brick wall."
