NaPoWriMo, poem 14

Five minutes

I’ve been trying all morning

to write a poem

Now I’ll give myself

a five minute deadline

Because some people write better

under pressure

I’m not normally one of them

but I can change.

I can see this isn’t really a poem

even though I’ve shaped it like one

so I will try harder

try harder –

of course that’s ridiculous.

Poetry isn’t something you can

squeeze from a lemon

like juice and seeds,

but time can be squeezed

and words can come out

just like that.
