I think what I love about poetry,
Is the spaces it creates.
Not only the scenery,
With the wild descriptions,
And the subtext messages.
But also the gaps of the story,
Filled in by the reader.
It is a sort of joint project,
The poet providing a phrase of context,
And the reader remembering the unsaid words.
In the end, the poem is true gestalt, more than the
sum of its parts.
