    a piece of truth

    WHat does the following sentnece mean?( it compares short story with a poem to explain what a short story is)

    Just as in the poelm, the bare words( in a short story) are never complete meaning. Their sounds do things and they interact with each other. THe poem tries to create a piece of truth, an insight into being human and the form is so tight, so sparse that we can argue over exact meanings long into the night.

    There is more there than meets the eye. Much is said, but much is unsaid (or only hinted at).
