It stares out from the screen at me
I stare right back at it
Yes, it says, I am quite blank
And, yes, I feel a git.
I’ve got no spelling errors
Syntax perfect, yes
I’m just a piece of white blank verse
Examine me, address!
But I’ve got better things to do
Than look at verse blank white
Despite your perfect spelling and
Your syntax being right
But poet, are you saying
You’ve given up on me?
My white blank screen’s no challenge to
Create your poetry ?
(My screen’s making me feel guilty…..)
