Why Titles 2007

                       Why Titles

I’ve figured out why I like titles.

Auden wrote without them. I can’t.

Titles are a mantra:

Phrase that pops into the head

As key to insight;

The abbreviation;

When you’ve gone, a reference.

As for me, the author,

Why the choice of poetry

When all one need do is explore,

Develop, deepen, say it?

Say it, without need for rhythm,

Certainly without a rhyme.

It must be genes, the DNA,

Memory that lies in Time,

The need to share,

And being clear

From sloth that rests

In the obscure.
