Metaphorically Speaking (March 2008)

Oblique in reference
They have no name
Matters of the obscura
Part fauna, part flora
Never something tame

Chasms of experience
They feel no shame
Sensing all and absorbing
Cataloguing, resourcing
Remaining the same

What I refer to is thought
Wonderful, unchained, unbound
Limitless, all around
Bringing life to what we’ve sought
Like breathing into our lungs
Unbidden and involuntary
Until, if we’re ordinary
We smother them with leaden tongues
