It’s Metapoetic

~

I try to write.

    I cannot write.

I try  to write down   a poem.

 

The words,    too trite;

  ideas,    so slight;

I question  sometimes

    what I’m doing.

 

In rhythm and rhyme,

    I concoct a line.

And I try     to keep    the poem going.

 

It’s metapoetic;

  but ‘still,’    getting tragic.

 

And it suddenly

  begins   to   slowing.

 

Still, I give a good fight,

  with all of my might;

then I find,

  that sometimes,

    just like magic,

 

the Muse,   at the end,

puts the poem   to the pen –

    bemused by my efforts    to write it.

 

It’s   ‘Meta’ Poetic.
