13. How I Read a Poem

How I Read a Poem

 

I take a poem and look gently into its soul, trying to uncover the secrets hidden within.

 

With no such luck,

 

I become more aggressive.

 

I’m a detective investigating someone.

Bit by bit trying to break them down.

 

Suddenly…

 

The secrets begin to leak out.

 

Drip,

       drop,

                drip.

 

As the investigation becomes more intense, soon a little leak becomes a waterfall.

 

A flood.

 

And now that the case has closed I'm satisfied, and the secrets in which the poem once held are now mine.
