The Poems Of The Wild Words And Unexpected Meanings


THE POEMS OF THE WILD WORDS AND UNEXPECTED MEANINGS

The poems of the wild words and the unexpected meanings
Escape me -
The surprises of each new line’s metaphors
Are far from my power-
A plodding literal single- mindedness
Informed by small irony
Is all I have.

Poems distant from mine and greater
Inhabit the dreaming worlds,
And I inferior
With lesser words
Persist in making my Mediocrity up.
