Logical poem
« on: February 28, 2018, 01:12:01 PM »
OK, here is my supposedly 'logical' poem.

Writing Poetry

if the earth was the size of a grape
and you touched it
lightly
you would be able to feel the difference
between the pine tree and the fish and chip shop
that’s how sensitive
your fingertips are

and when the world is the size of a grape
and I drop it
accidentally
on the supermarket floor
I can feel the stickiness left behind
that’s how sensitive

and when Tuesday is tissue paper
and I try to smooth it out
carefully
I can still feel wrinkles as small
as 13 nanometres thick
that’s how

impossible it is
to get everything
just right
