    I don't have any poetry in me

    I carried it in my pockets, but
    life picked me up by the feet and shook
    until it all poured out strong, and took
    my pennies and pennies and pennies and cents -
    and pennies of sense.

    I don't have any poetry in me

    I used to be able to scribble out words
    and occasionally they'd add up
    to numbers just large enough to OD with,
    and just small enough to understand, yet
    I don't understand.

    I don't have any poetry in me

    Expression seems indispensable.
    Stomach burns with pent-up disorder;
    unspoken concepts remove a glow.
    I sit around and pretend to wax poetic,
    but right when I need it to write when I need it,

    I don't have any poetry in me

    They tell me I can, I will, I do.
    They tell me this standing atop my head.
    And I, under water, and they ahead,
    wonder how long till I'll be dead;
    my words have been said; there is no more.

    So I don't have any poetry in me
