Random Poem:

Call it What you Will

This is my return,
to a platform I've stayed away from
so with this anagram, I stand to try
to write again, even if the first time I didn't
succeed or manage to make any friends
but writing isn't for you, it's for me
this is just the beginning of maybe a phase
waitress' food trays, weak word plays
internal rhymes completely nonsensical.
Blowing up.
expanding over times had, years lost
of course
you don't remember
I wasn't memorable
not aiming for a target audience,
my dog loves me
so does my girl,
I have family
barely making life
Call it what you will.
