Because an Allegory would be too Complicated

January 22, 2010
Poetry, you will be the death of me.
Understatement or overstatement?

Allusion hurts the most—
Makes me think God’s laughing at me
(and the Greeks too).

Ironic that I manage to slide by
Perhaps I’m just speaking figuratively.
I’m certainly not being symbolic.

My head is rattled now.
I’ll save denotation
For another day.
