My Best Ever Poem

Me dreaming about writing my best ever poem

The best poem that I will ever write

Has not been written yet;

It’s certainly not this one.
It may be my next poem

It might be my last poem

It could be both 

(Nice to go out on a high)

Or it could be years from now

And I might not even recognise it’s genius

Until it was too late.
I hesitate…
As I do…
And digress a little…
By mentioning the Sphinx…
Which is quite strange

And a propos of nothing before

Like a non-sequitur-

Oh, look at me going all foreign…
As I said…
This is not my best poem; but it is my latest.
I don’t hold out much hope for my future attempts…
Do you?
