Envy most I those
who easily express . . . their thoughts . . .
with words . . . they just dispose
of complex metaphors like stubborn knots.
And clink down words like dominoes.
Some of us remain
confined to poetry, i.e.
(not wishing to complain)
that’s all we see
on which to tie
our damp interior thoughts so they can dry.
