“If you lived in a poem…

Speak to us.
(And be prepared to defend your choice, though you don’t need to use that in your response.)

You might also live in other works of art.”


I don’t live in a poem

a painting

a photograph

I barely


in between

the chorus

of some song lyric


some graffiti

artist’s tag

in the sliver

of inhale/exhale

I don’t live

I don’t exist

I am gone

in the imagining
