A Poem for NPM, Day 5

Today’s poem is a fairly recent one (from 2005). Instead of introducing it too much and spoiling the fun, here it is:

David Hernandez, “Fontanelle”

There’s quite a nice symmetry going on. The question mark in stanza 3, line 3 is literally at the poem’s center and acts like a threshold. And I like the fact that Hernandez actually says what many of us probably think, even if it’s a “dark thought.”
