I wanted to write a poetry book
with no idea how it should look.
But who would publish such a thing?
Not her or him or him.
How many pages should I write?
Will no one help me with my plight.
Which new format should I use
maybe I’ll just sing the blues.
Should my face be on the cover
with my mother or my brother?
This is harder than I thought.
Another way must now be sought.
No more chance for loot or fame
maybe I’ll just rob a train.
This is not what I know best
I can not write I must confess.
