I Cannot Understand Poetry
I've never understood poetry, the practice of lining up words and the spaces between silence, the sound of symmetry.
I never understood poetry, a broken mirror to reality they told me meant anything can be reflected, opaque but precisely.
I'll never understand poetry, life is too much without covering your thoughts in shadows, boxed-in by complexity.
I cannot understand poetry, and that's very frightening.
It probably means too much to mean too little to me.
