On Poetry — A Poem about the Process of Writing Poetry

A little tickle of thought
or a nagging notion
Sometimes just a couple
well strung words
Tumble about
amidst daily concerns
of paying bills,
work struggles
and work successes
or what to have for dinner
that’s not too involved
cuz really you don’t want
to cook, you’ve got an itch
to sit and play with a few words
put them down, rearrange them,
massage them, beat them,
get them in place,
until they fit just right
with no sharp edges
to your discerning ear.
