Theory

Tangled up in theories and numbers,
I refrain from givin' definite answers;
It's not that I'm afraid of sayin' too much
or I' m absorbed in things many consider as abstract.
It's because I don't have a clue about mathematics,
rules, definitions - computers too.
I simply do not reside in areas as these
and I can't wait to dwell on instances like
this:

Theory by Wallace Stevens

I am what is around me

Women understand this
One is not duchess
A hundred yards from a carriage

These, then are portraits:
A black vestibule
A high bed sheltered by curtains

These are mere instances
