2.

  • I ask them to take a poem
  • and hold it up to the light
  • like a color slide
  • or press an ear against its hive.
  • I say drop a mouse into a poem
  • and watch him probe his way out,
  • or walk inside the poems room
  • and feel the walls for a light switch.
  • I want them to waterski
  • across the surface of a poem
  • waving at the authors name on the shore.
  • But all they want to do
  • is tie the poem to a chair with rope
  • and torture a confession out of it.
  • They begin beating it with a hose
  • to find out what it really means.
