Late Night Poetry Creation (22:20-22:33)

It’s better to write poetry

in the morning,

between 9 and 12,

rather than late at night;

but, sometimes,

a poet has to open up his rhyme box,

grab a few feet of lyrical rope,

and lasso some vague ideas together.


In the clear light of day,

it can often be seen

that the efforts were less than—

well, shall we say,


However, occasionally,

great works of particular skill

and delicacy are created.

This is not one of those.
