Somewhere Else - Poem by douglas scotney

No doubt about
'Somewhere else':
What is
Is out of it,
And isn't
Without it.

What's out of it
Isn't without it.
Without it
What wouldn't be.

But there's doubt
About 'what':
Without it would
'Somewhere else' be?

    A meaningful discourse of the many somewhere else things we have stored in our minds, perhaps erased later, and hopefully, by the word content. (Report) Reply
