Original Comparisons: Why Rhyming is Like The First Jacket of Autumn

Let me ask you something, perhaps you can figure it out.

I’ve created a lot of these, perhaps you can do it yourself now.

Wearing new clothing at the beginning of a season…

two words having the same sound, aligned somehow in meter?

Why oh why could these things be similar?

I’ll give you the answer.

Because in both of these cases, the past and the present are laid upon one another.

In both cases, it’s very refreshing, very enthralling.

The feel of wearing clothes anew, like before, taking me back to a previous season, becoming part of the beauty of the future.

The feel of words that neatly match, like the present somehow catching the past.

A lovely union, but never quite for either.

The feel of the present is based upon what was.

Of course there are unpleasant times to have a jacket on.
Of course there are rhymes that just don’t work at all for anyone.

Maybe it’s inside that space that you can figure out how to be kinder.
Maybe this is the way for us to not be mediocre.

If I have engaged you, please read my manifesto.
