To Borrow

Answering with phrases loaned…

a paradox recalled

 

The choices, nouns and pronouns,

all verbs to rise or fall

 

Old questions freed, all doubt besieged,

defined and then dethroned

 

The power in each chosen word,

to borrow—not to own

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2019)
