how to write an internet poem

string a series of words together
evoking images
representative of emotions

be sincere or snide
or real
or just plain stupid

be occasionally slightly
offensive

come up
with a clever title

give it a few tags
then send it into the ether

(D James)

the write time

waiting
for silence
to rise

for words
to pour out
like water from a pitcher

stopping
then typing
wanting
then trying

failing
then beginning
again

the dam breaks
when the thoughts
of can’t
and not good enough

are abandoned
ignored
left to die
of starvation

or simply put aside
while the typing
becomes writing

and hours
go by
unnoticed

(D James)
