A poem that compares life to a bunch of different and seemingly unrelated trivial things.

life is like

life is like
ants marching off to war
homemade ice cream
a slap in the face
a kiss on the lips
a cold beer
a nap
too much money
not enough
a car wreck
warm buttered salty popcorn
a bad movie
a good one
an empty bird nest
the desert
the great plains
an ocean
a long holiday
the warm sun
a cool breeze
the sound of a stream
a piano
the violin
a cat dozing on the sofa
a scream
a whisper
cool clean sheets
a hot bath
rice paper
worn jeans
a favorite sweater
a true fable
the curtain that obscures the truth
a sunset
the sunrise
making love
the feel of your lover's skin
the sound of your lover's voice
arriving home after a long trip
leaving again
a faithful wife
an abusive father
a dead animal in the road
a cloud
the snow
rain on the roof
crisp autumn leaves
cool summer grass
blood along the edge of a knife
a cage
a riot
a dark room
a walk in the park
losing your mind
finding it
a lifesaving operation
sticking by your friends
running away from home
it is all of these things
and much more
it is an open door
and sometimes
