Who am I?

I am an explorer
of words;
blindly travelling through unknown lands
in a desperate attempt
to map the unconscious mind.

I am a detective;
searching for clues
to unravel the mystery
hidden beneath
layers of metaphors.

I am a surgeon;
slicing through symbols
and stereotypes
to reveal the
vital information.

I am an inventor;
creating elaborate meaning
from another's passion.

I am an English teacher.
