Unwritten poems

Swarm my mind

As I try to sleep


They always come

When they can’t be caught


Right before bed

In the middle of conversation

During lunch


They are like birds

Fickle, fleeting

flying, flitting about

From one place in my head

Then out

Never to return

Eaten by the eagle

Of no pen

No paper

No time

I wrote this in math when I did have a pen, paper, and time. (math is boring)
