If I were Quicker at Poetry




If I were Quicker at Poetry


If I were quicker
at poetry
I’d pen a poem
or two 
or three
or four
and maybe a dozen more
then April wouldn’t be such a chore.

But I’m NOT quick;
I’m slow and wan.
(I have some days to catch up on.)

But if I were blank,
here’s what I’d do:
I’d post THIS poem 
and say, 
“I’m through!”

And so, “I’m through!”; that’s what I say.

(That is,
at least,
through yesterday.)

  2. There can be a lot of pressure behind such a rushed production can't there?!! This expresses wonderfully a facet of PAD!! :)
