to the others, when I’m disappointed in myself

January 29, 2013

You look better than me
and
you write better than me
so
what the hell am I supposed to do
but brood here
waiting for the fire
to boil
bubble up and over

A poem a day would be nice
Ha! A poem a week would do
But when Hank said
“Don’t try.”
I vowed not to
And now look where I am.
