by any other name

if it looks like a poem
and sounds like a poem
and maybe taste like a poem
then i guess it probably is

but it doesn’t do what poems do
it isn’t a machine made of words
it doesn’t make you think of pretty stuff
or feel nostalgic

or feel inspired
or feel sad
or feel happy
it just kind of is

but it does look like a poem
and it does sound like a poem
and it might taste like a poem
so i guess it’s probably okay
