As we enter the second half of April, it is not always easy to find a poem in my fingers. Others' ideas inspire me, but the words do not seem to be there, and so I wrote my feelings of today.
I wish I could steal someone’s poem
that one with the beautiful words,
that tells of the endings and then
the beginnings, the insides and outsides,
the tales that are of lives,
their feelings and
and the deep hates.
They can whip out the phrases
and find just the words to show
the words are not mine
they might serve to
buy me some time
while I wait for the words so right.
(Do you know that I wrote all night?)
I wish I could steal just one rhyme
But I cannot; those words are not mine.
