lecture + romantic + poetry

there is a stack of
books, heaped so high as to be a
menace. they reach to
just below my hip, unless
i’m forearmed with thick-soled shoes.


they contain poems,
some more romantic than their
companions. others
cling to the soul, magically
bound to the mind, staying on.


i could lecture you
on them to my heart’s content
but i’m told that you
shouldn’t reduce poems to just
literary devices and notes.
