Even poetry's answers are
questions--they ask us,

"Did he die in vain?"
"What color was that flower?"
"How tall was she?"
"Whose bus ticket?"
"Will they live or die?"
"When will the rain come back?"
"How are you going to love them?"

by describing
a soldier's last breath,
the arrival of springtime,
a meeting of two strangers,
a downtown miracle,
a heart-pounding chase,
the parched and gaping crop,
a prophet's divine wisdom.

And in response, we the readers
dream up our possibilities.
We tag on the question mark.
