Regular Poem: All the Bad Poems I Shouldn’t Write

7 Sep

I’ve spent
(what feels like
[what may or may not be])
the entire summer
in varying stages of wine-drunkenness and
varying stages of undress
in my hammock
contemplating

bad poems I shouldn’t write.

Poems about the slowest app on the slowest phone.
Poems about cobwebs.
Poems about bad decisions regarding cupcakes, bourbon, and bars.
Poems about having tender, bite-inciting flesh.
Poems about punching (slightly imagined) rivals straight in the titian face.
Poems about being wine drunk in a hammock.
Poems about living Ecclesiastes.
Poems about poems

and poems about nothing at all.

And I’ve written none of them.
Because I shouldn’t.
Because they’re stupid and bad.

But really I’ve written all of them.
Because here I am
a bottle of wine
and a hammock
later.

    I think I’d like to read some of these unwritten poems.

      Maybe one of these days, I won’t restrain myself with good taste. 😉

        Ha ha! One of the things that I love about your poetry is that you don`t take yourself too seriously. Plus it`s smart and well written.
        So there.

        I will certainly take that “so there” as a compliment! Thank you!
