Only So Many Ways to Say…

metaphors

are so fake

they’re always

putting on the dog, &

oh my God, they do!

similes

are just copycats

(like, metaphorically speaking)

and analogies

allude–

too dodgy to say what

they’re really about

circling foliage instead

parallel fencing, they keep most meaning out

trees garden-fresh, though!

(en garde)

and allegories

are just pets

something that

stroke-stroke-strokes

facts

into half a façade

which partial stories,

house medallion-wearing

tenets

whose accent

obscure

things too difficult to say. . .
