where do you end up when you cross the bridge to nowhere?

when i sling
words together
a one man band
playing yr song
half tranced
i have no idea
what the poem means
but you do

    true. and that’s what makes this poetry business so bewitching.

    Yes, very true. I can relate to this deeply. It is only in a trance that we end up saying the most profound things, which sometimes takes ourselves some time to understand.

    But then, at other times, a few go along with these pointers that words are and pointlessly analyse them, forsaking the thing they were intended to point to or allude.

    Interesting title, I’m assuming you’re referring to politics, but then again a bridge to nowhere is metaphor for other things as well.

    Isn’t that what art (in this case, poetry) is all about? Create it and hand it over to others to relate to and find their unique meaning.

    This really speaks to me. Good one, Scot.

    I love this! To focus on what the reader brings to a poem!
