COMPARING LIFE WITH ITS OWN MEANING// WITHOUT TO EITHER BEING DEMEANING
Copyright © 2018 by Marvin Cohen

The meaning of life? I'm not sure.
Somehow life seems too obscure,
not to mention of course complex,
to deserve a plain meaning.
That seems mean of life to so demean
the actual meaning of itself.
So let's call both equally obscure
in their complicated rearrangement
of a bodily organism and its attendant word
to keep their wrinkled separateness from seeming absurd.
