i told myself,
you are not going to be
a poet
poets are sad and lonely
and they die too
young
we learned about poets
in school
kenyon
dickinson
parker
and i said, you don't want
to end up like them
but the words kept coming
they filled my head with
their noise
so i wrote them down
so that i would not forget
and what i saw when i
was finished
was my epitaph
my death sentence
