Marionettes (Part II)

I think poetry that makes you think too much to try to understand it isn’t a good thing. Because, if you have to think about it that much, it’s doubtful that it’s stirring anything inside you. I guess some people like to write poems as a riddle. But I like to use my poems more as marionettes… little strings to push and pull, both your mind and your emotions, in different directions. Otherwise, it’s just not enjoyable. It’s like watching a movie that you don’t understand. It’s my job to make the poem unfold for you. You shouldn’t have to try to make it unfold for yourself. Your job is to just sit back and take it in.
