Poetic Criticism

“This poem...”
she said

“... is like...is like
a meniscus.”

“You know...
that thin skin
of surface tension

that water wears

so those tiny spiders
can walk upon its surfaces

...like skaters! ”

she said

as if to reassure
her judgement.

“Well, it’s a bit
like that! ”

“Right...? ” I said. “Right..! ”

None the wiser.
