Shakespeare?

Another old poem. I believe I was thinking about Shakespeare, no way of knowing though it was written so long ago.

He talked in stanzas

breaks and pauses

not flowing with the language.

A rhyme of his own creation

nothing that could be

un-der-stood

nor comp-re-hend-ed

What can be said

about a man

who speaks

in a way that lies with the dead?

His breaks,

his pauses,

his stanzas

ring in my head.
