shouldn’t be that hard
just scribbling words on a page
memorizing facts for a test
reading from textbooks

and yet somehow
I write these words
not the papers I should
but a few nouns and verbs,
and even a handful of adjectives
that have nothing to do with
the ancient world,
or children’s theater,
or critiquing classmate’ poems.

the problem
I’ve figured
is these words

the very same words I should be
putting to paper
for turning in
to professors and fellow students

instead, I twist these letter groups
turn them ‘round
producing this semblance
of a poem

not much, to be sure
no striking images
no brilliant turns of phrase
just these letters
tapped across the keys
as I sit
and refrain
from working.

I think I like this more than I should. Maybe I jsut haven't sat on it for long enough. We shall see!
