I wrote a poem yesterday –
I took six pages of notes before writing it!
I considered breakfast; coffee, brown nuts,
soda water, oranges, sleeping, sweeping,
Dishes, paper, canyons, cats, feet
fear, children, dangers, laundry,
Leopards, and deep wounds, among other things.
I didn’t think the poem was any good,
wasn’t feeling well, out of focus.
I read parts of books, tried to force the issue.
I ate lunch, finally gave up.
