Anything I Say
Never believe anything I say.
All the more, if it is
in a poem. I become
enamored of words, let them lead me
where they will. They put themselves
in my mouth. Even I
sometimes believe. Even I
can be seduced by the meaningless
phrase that sounds just right
and maybe it is. I'll not argue
the point with myself; I can't claim
to understand anything I say.
