short poems

You said, “I like short poems.”

I like them, too, but don’t you
ever find yourself wanting to
read a bit further on, to see

where it could go?

It’s easier to write this way
& agreeably sometimes best
to just write what you say but

I miss fluid lines that would
take me somewhere after
eyes had made the mileage

where thoughts continue on
past descriptive suggestion
and beyond the last word -

haven’t you ever wanted more?
