The Poems I Have Not Written

Cowardly_lion2

 

I am outside late at night

Writing poems

About the poems

I have not written

The ones I’ve turned away from

Because of embarrassment

Or timidity

Or fear of shedding my jovial persona

and find somewhat alarmingly

that the poems I have not written

far outnumber the ones I have.
