My poetry engine broke and I can use a little help from my friends

After 3 poetry books published this year

my poetry engine

died.

My friend Ted tells me to get my poetry engine started

by buying 4 or 5 kinds

of tasty liquor then sit down

and drink 6 to 12 drinks

until poetry

starts pouring out.

Sebrena says to have some exciting experiences

to see if I can start

my poetry engine.

She says she can suggest

some experiences

to get poems

flowing

once

again.

Mikey says

just sit for days

with pencil and paper

until the poetry

bleeds from

my veins.

Anybody anywhere

have other ways

to crank up

my poetry engine?

I need to keep my

poetry engine running.

I fear it will become

rusty and can’t be fixed.

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
