       first off, the answer is: both.

    this is more about a conversation than about the author and reader of a poem. but, the insperation of this came from playing with relative comparrisons between author,narrator and reader, with art, science and philosophy. if only i could of wrote on that! lol

    just a little funny approach to the situation

    dotscommunicatio is a 2 person equationdots

    In an attempt to better communicate I question: how should I articulate?
    Should I try to demonstrate?
    Or poetically force you to contemplate?

    Can I truly explain what I mean?
    Or do I, intern, only show you what I’ve seen?

    Will you understand what I try to convey?
    Or will you be confused by the manner of which the concept is portrayed?

    Should I treat the explanation like an equation?
    Or colorfully paint it into a poetic expression?

    “Is there truly a difference?
    Or does their vocabulary simply give them distance?”

    Is it me who needs to better my articulation?
    Or is it you who needs to expand your method of computation?

    In an attempt to better communicate I question: how should one conceptualize?
    Do you analyze or interpret?
    Do you ‘take apart’ or ‘put together’?

    “Which one works better?”


    In an attempt to better communicate I ask of you to first speculate;
    Do you analytically depict information?
    Or do you synthesis it into an interpretation?

    After you answer, I will have mine.

    (Either scientifically demonstrate or give you the tools to philosophically contemplate.)

    For there is an equation to proper communication that comes in the form of poetry, but its easily forgotten that it 'always' involves 'both' Me and You…

      what a wonderful piece to post on ES. this should be the new commenting guidelines. why is it everything you seem to write feels like theres a mathmatic undertone, as if you have the formula for how things should be, hidden under the sheet you write your rough draft on? poetry does take two parties, the creator and the appreciator, with out having both, theres no point to the work, the energy put forth to push the pen. i found this enlightening and both hilarious since im doing my commenting rounds.
