'What is the purpose of poetry? [Candidates

but with both frontal lobes;
hearts may be used in answers to this question.]'

After the two hours is up, hand in
a blank sheet; the examiner may sigh and smile.

Some sages say - those not affected
by some academic status to uphold -
(that pause, that look, which indicates,
it's not as simple as all that...) -
that it's the oldest-fashioned thing,
to melt the heart...

but today I'd say, well yes and no -
more like a key you turn and - whoosh! -
there cascades out, all that's in their heart,
all the vast all which they have to give;
and you stand aside, stunned and humble;
such a small key; such a vast world is there.
