A Lot

Sometimes my girlfriend is like

“What’s this poem mean?”

And I’m like

The thing is

If it meant something

I could explain

More simply

I’d just have said that,

Instead!

But usually I’m trying to express

More than one thing

The way that I

Never can when I am

Speaking. I want to be

More than one thing and

I can’t possibly start

Explaining anything without

Limiting the perspective to

What I’m talking about.

Also like

Fuck meaning

It means something different

Every time I read it

Every context I’m in

How hot I feel affects how

The poem reads and

How cold or warm or

How achy

All of it is

A lot,

So to speak.
