This title has nothing to do with whatever the poem is about (a poem)

A little of this, and a little of that…

Often I run out of metaphors
or oblique ways to tell truth

Emotion flows around the shapes
pooling in inconvenient places

Light bends, tricking perception
irises widen, petals close

Sleep comes in a close second
not caring—it’s too tired

The poem lingers between spaces
defying capture
