not to write

what if i wanted to write something

a poem that rhymes or doesn’t

about someone or no one

with or without God

what if i wanted to talk about love

what it is or isn’t

who I’ve loved or haven’t

if anyone

what if it were a poem that nobody

ever read anyway

then I could say

whatever I thought

what if I’d rather be quiet

and hear the symphony

of noises that make up silence

including my breathing
