Sometimes 3



Sometimes I seek a poetry
that reveals or dispels the various illusions of self.
So many others seem to want one
that revels in them.

Sometimes we want to hear, not see.
Sometimes it’s okay to tell, not show.
It’s called “storytelling” for a reason.

Words don't resist the things I do with them.
Sometimes readers do.

Sometimes success entraps and failure frees.
