Anyway



If I write a pome
that starts out
say
with dishes and doing them
and all things mundane
and grows or whines
and ambles around
throwing in articles
and phrases profound

it probably
foreshadows
you probably expect
for the last line to repeat
where I started at

convention, ok, an example?
extant
like show me
don't tell me
why talk about that

anyway?

Because pomes come
when I play Kyodai
or xBox my time away
wasting, and why
does it nag at my head
'til I write it down
Why wake up with whole
pomes wanting to sound
outloud in the world
become my most sought
after pome at events
where my peers are all not.

All the different ways
that pomes get writ
whether I want them or not
(no control over it)
I can play writing games
and pretend to not be
but the words will come anyway
see bee and we
or CBGB?
and I think about
lost
causes, and dreams,
and the children forgot.

Write them all down, to prove to myself
that I've done something whether
successful or not
to you, or the world
who expect great things
to the sisters who kept
asking when? Are you famous?

I tried to live up to
expectations, all mine,
and my mother's, and the band's
and the artist's I found
while playing at
poetry, and art
and a wiz
at none of it,
it's made up, all,
just like this.

You want a pome
there, I gave you one.
It's a pome about poems
and wanting to do one.
Why rhyme? doesn't matter,
conventions,
I fall
into categories sometimes
except when I don't

call
me a poet, or whatever word comes
make a living, how?
no one's buying this stuff
I can't help myself
and it's been 31

days since any
single
dish has got done.

(see? :)
