i want to know how to write a poem.

"put pen to paper or yer fingertips to the keyboard. no sweat. poetry is all around you."
- Raegan Butcher

you make it look easy, to write a poem:
take notice of your surroundings, what
goes on around you & all the things, oh

but that's bullshit. we both know it is a
lot harder than that to write something
decent - a poem that speaks/talks back

a poem that you think about later on in
the dark or when you're washing dishes
or some other lonely job in real life living

a poem that doesn't feel forced or looks
down on you as though it's beyond your
understanding but there - under & inside

a poem that
means something
even when you don't.
