In The Meantime
It is hard to know what to write about
Do you start with some thematic rhyme
That invariably ends up discussing clocks
Or perhaps you discuss current events
Maybe you decide that the classics
Are classics for a reason, and that
Imitation truly is the deepest form of flattery
Or else that free form is the truest path
But if you are brave, there’s only one topic
One thing to discuss, to dissect and dissemble
True art only asks just one thing
And the rest naturally falls by the wayside
What is locked in your deepest heart?
Will you fight to make it so?
Who is stopping you?
Why are you waiting?
