There Is a Poem Within This Poem


There is a poem
within this poem
and I want you to find it.

If you say YES, you will.
If you say NO, you won't.

That's how simple
the whole thing is.

But if you look,
you will not see it.
If you listen, you will hear
only the sound of a cello in the distance.

Think of this poem, if you like,
as what remains after everyone is gone,

the perfume of your first lover,
remembering you, with a slow smile.
