Poetry Friday

but what is poetry anyway?
More than one rickety answer
has tumbled since that question first was raised.
But I just keep on not knowing, and I cling to that
like a redemptive handrail.

~ Wislawa Szymborska from "Some People Like Poetry" translated by Stanislaw Baranczak and Clare Cavanagh ~
