a friend’s been reading my poems
i like then he said
some he went on
look like they only took one second to write
they did i said
he laughed and said
i still like them
as in despite
and as though somehow
he’d stuck out his pale neck.
i looked at him until i had remembered the rules:
a week should take seven days
fedex overnight
and a poem longer than one second to make
