The Lunch Break

He’s deep in thought, lunch on his lap
Reading work by Ezra Pound.
“I’ve not a clue
What it’s about
But I like the way it sounds.”

Years ago I found my co-worker reading some poetry outside of the office on his lunch break. I asked him later in the day what he thought of Ezra Pound and he couldn’t tell me anything. He just said he likes how it sounds. Sometimes, it doesn’t have to be about the meaning at all. Poetry is music!
