Yes, you read it right.

I like to keep things simple------
and “A Short Poem” is about as simple
as you can get.
I suppose I could’ve just called it
“Poem”
but I think
that’s been taken.

“What,” you ask, “am I gonna write about?”

That is a good question.
I have several ideas kicking around, and
I plan on selecting one soon.

I was thinking maybe writing about
The Titanic
but,
according to The New York Times,

“To write
about the Titanic a poem
worth printing
requires
something more
than paper,
pencil,
and a strong feeling that
the disaster was a terrible one."
-----so, that kinda lets ME out...

I’d write about death,
-----or something equally unpleasant
but it’s such a nice day...
...I kinda hate to go there, right now, if
you know what I mean.

Well...damn!
----------I’m gonna make another sandwich
and
I’ll get back to you soon.

I promise.
