How's It Hanging?

“I have done one braver thing
  Then all the Worthies did,
Yet a braver thence doth spring
  Which is, to keepe it hid.”

John Donne, from “The Undertaking”

How’s It Hanging?

I'm not a nature boy,
I'm a city boy.
But I'm not a city boy,

I'm a metaphysical poet.
Except, I'm not a poet,
I'm an animal. Well,

less an animal
than a big bang.

That’s how I hang.
