Poetry? (K)not Me! (2016 April PAD - Day 25)

Poetry? (K)not Me!



Some days poetry calls

for astonishing mental gymnastics

but when you’re not graceful

or the least bit elastic

there’s every possibility

it’s an exercise in futility.



Sometimes it feels like a workout,

athletic and weighty –  intense;

sometimes a marathon,

sometimes a sprint –

at other times, more like

extreme self defense.



There are times when I’m

 twisted and tangled in words,

in inklings and meanings

I’m tied up a lot.

The fact is

(it’s simple, and easy to see)

at times, I’m a poet

at times, iam(b)

(k)not.
