The secret to writing poems

It is not about rhythm
or being particularly deep

it’s not about rhyming
obviously

it’s not even about
the words you pick
and if you’re still
long enough
you will feel
them pick themselves

it’s just a staring contest
between you and life

it’s about getting past
the itch to write
and waiting out
the familiar

poetry is not a skill
it is a vow
to hunt for the view
that is new.
