My Crutch

I’ve written over a thousand Poems,

in search of just that one

 

Each word to slay the demon time,

each phrase my soul respun

 

I’ve come so close a hundred nights,

to see but not to touch

 

Then left to limp between the lines

—their failure now my crutch

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2017)
