No Poetry in 24 Hours


I may have a day off, today.

I may not write a word.

Not a single one.

Do you hear?

Brain?

Are you listening to me?

Are you taking note of my intention

‘NOT’

To write anything

At all

Today?

Are you?

Okay.

Just so long as we are clear upon that.

I’d hate it for you and I

To have a falling out

Over all this po-e-try

(What?  That ‘try’ is pronounced  ‘tri’)

Well thank you very much for making that plain

I won’t ask –

Or tell –

You again.

No ‘poetry’. Brain.

O!

K?
