A poem a day in April from Rutgers English PhD students and friends.

"it broke at the thought of..."—
well that's good but metaphors are just tools;
either they break down and your stuck but a little wiser,
or they resolve and you know what happens next.
"i believe they're the real thing"—oh no, my love, live;
things only seem to work in other ways to give us clues
but how else do you breathe each time,
know when to pull, relax and fall
