I’ve Never Written a Poem

I’ve never written a poem–

never felt a prick at

the center of my ribs,

when a line comes,

out of control,

up through the chest,

bubbling between the ears–

never cried at 3 am

because I could not

breath

from the static weight of a

stanza on my lungs–

never looked at a blank page,

desperate to excavate words,

meaning,

being–

I’ve never written a poem.
