Avec (a poem)

True story.

I wanted to write a poem
consisting only of a preposition

But I knew it would be misunderstood
because those are the ones
that are always misunderstood

Sometimes I don’t know
what they mean

It’s so much harder
to capture a feeling
than it is to feel it and let it be

You may find it inscrutable
but that line means something to me
