A poem about writing poems
As an engineer I believe that
An accurately formulated problem
Gets you closer to the solution.
I’d say writing poems
Is like riding a bicycle:
I am not really good at it,
I don’t particularly enjoy it,
I am scared of the street cars,
Why do it when there are better ways?
Which is why I’d rather compare it
To driving my car:
An excuse to not share a drink,
A pretext to avoid the crowds,
An ability to come and go as I please.
I don’t know if I can call myself a poet,
But I am full of shit.
