Metaphor

We cannot know the heart of another
But we can speak in metaphor
We think of amazons and
the wolf chewing off its paw to escape the trap

Maggie Keswick Jencks
Jumped out of the aeroplane of normality
With a parachute strapped on by men in white coats
Who invent better and better parachutes
But she could never reboard the plane
Just chronicle a life worth living
