DIRECTIONS FOR HOW TO WRITE A POEM

Pick a word that you like.
Pick a lock that you look
Into the next word, maybe it's
The next word of a sentence,
Maybe it isn't. Try not to
Worry about the feathers
Flooding the floor, it's time
To put down the pen or push
Back the keyboard (me-board?)
And notice what you pinch
With your stare, a Shar-pei
Running across the steppe
At your command. The one you
And the two you and the blue
Shine of the afternoon
Won't mind if you pierce
The quiet with your words,
The ones you felt like
Bringing with you.
