Start / End
I’m bad at knowing where to start or end a poem.
Does it start at Hello? or Goodbye? and how do you
transition into a meaningful bit about longing for sunrise?
of a splashing duck? of sushi? of an angry parliament
in any country? how do you cross the line between
desirable and disarming or disruptive and disgusting?
I come up with lines or words or phrases or worse
I come up with someone else’s and don’t know it
because words are everywhere all the time forever
and it’s too big to track, to follow, so I start and then–
