Richard Jackson

                                                                                Everything
we see is a metaphor for what we don’t see. Everything we do is
a metaphor for what we don’t do. If you don’t finish this poem
it won’t exist. Neither will I. Where do we come from when
we come to ourselves? There’s a common thread that hasn’t
been established yet.

—Richard Jackson, from “Visionary,” Verse Daily. (February 17, 2011)
