Clever

There were things written to explain,

Things written to display,

Things written for philosopher’s logic

Things written for engineers’ rules

But things that have been written

I kept beneath my bed,

Inside my head,

at the back of my

paperbacks,

Are the things written that carve a heart

at night to fall asleep.

The things that make humans more

than a heap of flesh and bone
