A Poem Is A Metaphor/ Isn't It?


A poem is a metaphor
Isn’t it?
Aren’t we all poems?
Aren’t we all metaphors?
Aren’t we all what we are not?
And what we know we have been and not been?
And what we will be and not be?

Aren’t we all metaphors?
And aren’t we all poems?
And aren’t we all words, just words,
And not?
