if i wrote a poem

11 Aug

i thought if i wrote a poem

people might understand me better

might like me better

might invite me over to dinner

and introduce me to their dog

but it didn’t happen

all the same old doors are closed

and no new doors have opened

or so says the fake news delivered to me

by my self pity

i am known and loved by people

i have never met and probably

never shall

and new doors open all the time

i can feel the breeze and smell the ocean air

of a place where only poems dwell
