The furnace won’t kick on and my heart is sick. There is no purring or growling from its mechanical insides. The heater, not the heart. Poetry is the cupboard that won’t stay closed, it wants to show you what is behind its shanty stubborn door. The cupboard is heart sick too; with less romantic implications involved. Poetry is the robot that wants to be A.I. That wants to out perform its human counterparts, and yet empathizes too much with warmly lit LED eyeballs. Yeah. Sometimes that’s what I think poetry is.
