No One Ever Reads Free Verse Poems...

July 11, 2010
I know how to start it.
I know how to end it.
But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to fill in the empty spaces.
Two keys on my (stupid Compaq) laptop have broken off:
The “O”
And the “delete”.
“O, crap; this I need to delete.”
When I was in seventh grade
My teacher told me I write too much of a story.
In eighth grade, my mother told me I can’t tell a good story;
She said I use too many details.
No wonder I can’t fill in the blanks.
I need to invest in this thing called
“Don’t listen to what the adults tell you,
Most of ‘em lost their creativity long ago.”
Unfortunately, it’s a bit hard to
“Write for yourself”
When O is a key letter in the phrase
And a letter key misplaced.
