SMOKE

 

Absence make fingers

grow rusty

like anything else

you get out of practice

have to restart the fire

but the flint won't spark

ideas are all wet

the kindling won't catch

and poems produce nothing

but smoke.

S.O.S. S.O.S.

I am stranded on an Island
without a pen.
I guess I will have to write
with rocks.
