him?

I wonder, dear,
if it is clear
just whom I’m speaking of
in saying nothing more
about someone
I'm making reference to
within my lines
than “him”.
 
Apparently it is
according to J-z
if truly you’re a poet, but if not
then not.

Author's Note
J-Z's inability to write so that readers know of whom he speaks in his latest attempt at profundity and his implied claim that the referent of "him" is clear if a reader is a poet.
All writing remains the property of the author. Don't use it for any purpose without their permission.
