if you only write a poem when you really have to write one just to live, not to get pity-fucks, there'll be plenty of time between typing to play with yourself in some other way than this.
this was a time when i had to write one. i wrote a poem today that i thought was the best i could ever do about guns, and why we need them, and it was ad hoc. But when i posted it, and found i was signed out...devastating... meant more to me than those shootings
this didn't work for me on any level but feeling sad for the author. I read it blind, of couse, and it's not enough for me to say nice things in a poem box, hoping the boomy echo make's it seem real.
like, a poem is organic, and this one is a tube draining keystrokes.
when people live.
I have lived.
but, I am a little keyboard.
__ that's how I read it. death is null, but being afraid is real. who's fear is this about? the shooter? with his little keyboard gun? too many stories in this for someone who's not where you're at. probably work at poetrycircle.com though, but they're mostly into competition on each other for likes, and not about wrestling the poem.
How many?...maybe a couple of million.

whatever losers reads my pooms,
i hope they die in lonely rooms.
in lonely rooms must they unzip
while i get paid by tweety-pie.
by tweety-pie, and donald duck,
who make me blo, but do not...
they do not do my virgin bod,
cause, i'm a poet, not a sod.
