When poems fail…

I tried to write
a clever poem
about self image
vs external perception.
The effort felt like shitting LEGO
so I read it to my husband.
He's an engineer
and even he 
couldn't discover 
a shape in the bricks.

When in doubt
write it out.
But don't expect poetry.

  1. Well, this is a fun bit of poetry with a good message. Its important to remember its okay to right a pile of crap. You don’t have to share it. You can try to polish it. Whatever you do at least you wrote something!

  2. It ain’t that easy to write rhymned trash,
    I tried damn hard, felt constipated
    So I thought, I’d give a bash
    Passed oblong blocks, disarticulated.
    The mirror reflects an Oz-Chinese
    How others see me matters not.
    My taste buds crave a pie and peas
    I’m happy to accept my lot
