either/nor: another lesson in how to read poetry

of course there exists
an I within my words
which does not mean
it is me who you see
anymore than now or ever
when you place a toe
within the stream
which runs through
these troublesome words
anymore than there is
a you who lurks
upon the nether shore
tangled in the lines
with all the slippery fish
