Author's notes: decided to do a short poem a month this year. And more if more occurs, obv, but I thought it'd make a nice (?) little collection.



better

it is february

and i begin once again

to fear being attacked by a stranger

or hit by a car
heavenly bodies make the devil a little uncomfortable

This is certainly a clear expression of what I sometimes feel.
Be polite, or I may put you in a book and kill you.

Young at heart, old everywhere else.

Not doing things is my new superpower. Iím not doing an infinite number of things as we speak.

Thanks. I figure that's what poetry's really for -- to make you understand what I mean.

I think you're right, and you do it well.

I tried writing poetry way back in my innocent youth, but gave up on it since for me it always turned into a hunt for words that rhymed, which was, of course, not the right goal.
