a poem refuting the dichotomy of prose and poetry
If prose are bricks and poetry is water,
Then both are different and necessary.
I need bricks to build a home, and
I need water to sustain me.
The bricks stand staunch against the storm, and
Water slips through my fingers and disappears into the earth.
I dare not try to drink bricks or
Ask water to house me and keep me safe.
Yet both are necessary for my existence.
