What Is Is

(and I'm not even worth that) Did I not do what I did. Did I not. Did I not do what I did. Did I not. Yes I did do what I did. Yes I did. Yes I did do what I did. Yes I did. So what what what what should I have done? So what what what what did I assume? So how how how how could I have won? So how how how how can I resume? - tg00014

I like it, beginning with the title, which can be read in the fatalistic way, “What is, is,” or as a description of what is is, which in turn leads to the important reminder that what is is.

Format, repetition, italics, rhythm — it all works: an expressive poem to be seen and heard.

Appreciate your insights, William.
When I was tinkering with what to name this piece, I briefly considered the comma version. Also, some of my song lyrics and the tunes I have for them are daily bothering my brain, and it was one of those that was the catalyst for the qualities of the content here.
