A List of Things That Do and Do Not Know Something

By JAROD STURYCZ – The Abstract Section

The color red will not know

If you are still looking at it.

The color purple does not know

It is royal.

Your watch does not know

That it reads the wrong time.

A quarter does not know

It is worth more than a dime.

A crown does not know

On whose head it is.

The color red knows

Its natural element burns.

The color purple will know

Status is not real.

Your watch knows

That it ticks.

A quarter will know

The sound it makes when dropped on the ground.

A crown will know

When it is no longer on someone’s head.
