You asked me why I write--
Why I write poems.
Poems are free
by so many restraints
I can play with poetry
Poetry lets you talk
and at the same time
allows you to remain
so people can think you said something without you actually saying it
Poetry allows you to write about your imaginary friends (or your real ones) without being laughed at or sounding crazy or being ignored
Poems are a way to poke fun to complain to lament to exclaim to declare...
THEY are the reason why I write.
