Therapy As A Metaphor
written by: Mark Tulin
I save money on therapy.
I lie on the couch of free verse,
writing twenty-line poetry,
sharing my feelings through syntax
and stanza in a spiral-bound book.
I channel my angst
in metaphor and simile.
I sublimate my desires
through wishes and dreams.
My therapist is the blank page
that I pour my heart into,
dribs and drabs of a troubled past.
are the awareness of my thoughts
the mindfulness of my actions
I realize that there will never be any resolutions
to most of my problems and concerns,
just better poetry.
