More or Less!

More or Less!

A Poem by andrew mitchell

When  more met less
it was a match
made in heaven
more or less,
but to understand
the full picture
one had to know
much more, and
possibly many more,
and if not
much less,
and that’s it
more or less.
But does less
mean more?
Where are the equals
when you need them!

Numbers are everything and nothing. I did like the twist of words Andrew. I always love numbers. They been in my head. Like chess pieces in a game. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

There's something appealing here, but I can't tell you what it is. It's as if you're making fun of poets who come off all hoity-toity philosophical (my least favorite genre is high-and-mighty poet tellling others how to live their lives) . . . and so you're making a big f-in deal out of nothing as if to say that's what a certain self-righteous type might be inclined to do. But then again, I take you as a simple man & just cannot see you having base inclinations -- I'm convinced all this is coming from my own core of evil *heh! heh! heh!* fondly, Margie

Beautifully crafted but that's poetry. The truths poet discovers while writing yet appears as emotions creating art to others while the creator holds onto that pain molding you into thousands different skins shedding each one into something deeper than the rest. The poet takes away their static solidity, and turns a beauty which would otherwise attractive and architectural into music. But to be passing is to live: to remain and continue to die. I sense a lot of existentialist ideas of the human condition. The equality of such odds like the lingering question but no answer " is the odds ever in our favor" In the line says that "it was a match
made in heaven
more or less." Keep writing sincerely your friend in writing and life

Thank you nifty Nev.
Ha Andrew these lines got me thinking about opposites attract and the whole yin yang thing. I think there just needs to be balance, and then relationships should work. Hope you are OK and thanks for the reads.
