Which comes first, the poem or the title?

Well, there’s a question

that needs answering,

or maybe it doesn’t.


I tried to answer,

‘The poem!’

‘No, the title!’

and then I realised,

that in my case,

neither one

nor t’other

was obliged to be there at the beginning.


Winning was never about coming first.

Position yourself anywhere,

and you can still be a winner.


In this instance,

the title was there before anything else –

and I am still awaiting

anything resembling a poem

to follow.
