Poem of the Week 74

The Uncertainty of the Poet

 

Wendy Cope

 

 

I am a poet.

I am very fond of bananas.

 

I am bananas.

I am very fond of a poet.

 

I am a poet of bananas.

I am very fond,

 

A fond poet of ‘I am, I am’ –

Very bananas,

 

Fond of ‘Am I bananas,

Am I?’ – a very poet.

 

Bananas of a poet!

Am I fond? Am I very?

 

Poet bananas! I am.

I am fond of a ‘very’.

 

I am of very fond bananas.

Am I a poet?
