Metaphor

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
the mind is
lightning quick.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
love is
volcanic ash.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
earth is
a circle of birth.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
time is
a servant of death.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
beauty is a
draught to be drunk.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
the body is
a sponge of desire.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
these verses are
flowers to be plucked.

To see the world
as metaphor
is to say
you are
a golden gift.
