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 Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
