I Needed To Have A Poem Laid


By thought i wanted
to have a poem laid
in a flet blank paper
on my desk under my nose
where my eyes were at stare.

Intently with willingness
the paper was neatly stripped-
out of lines; the paper appeared
to be sarcastically agonizing
with readiness, i then changed
my gaze to my nails at my toes at
the tip of my feet.

I had by no meaning desire to change
a thought, i then kept my eyes still at
my feet not to glance up and catch another
thought that might sense to tell another
thought and forget to have a poem laid.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
