Don't wait, write it now.


All day the pen plunges

into the inkpot and resurfaces

to find no hand to guide it

over the warm page.


All day the poet attends

a real job, social media scrolls,

rendezvous with a winter lover

(you'll see, they'll melt this summer)

and endless calls to whoever

'cause loneliness kills, doesn't it?


The poem nods and drifts

a little further from the pen's tip.
