Poetry Friday: Not-A-Poem Poem

Not-A-Poem Poem

This is my not-a-poem poem
written late at night
before people expect a poem-poem.

And no, poetry doesn’t write me
I write poetry and it’s only
sometimes for me.

Mostly poetry’s to say
I’m here
and you’re here
and that’s there
and that happened
and this matters
and I don’t know what matters
so here are some words.

(P.S. Holy cow, now “poem” looks like a nonsense word.)
