One Is Not

by J.C McElheny

A bird is not a fish

One is confined

A pen is not a frog

One is sentient

Night is not a monkey

One is deep and dark

The heart is not the mind

One thinks

The other doesn't

The home is not a flood

One is safe

The train is not a boat

One floats

Yesterday is not today

Unless we look from tomorrow

Tomorrow will not be a book

Unless it is today
