I don’t write poems

I don’t write poems
I write journal entries
or un-catchy choruses
or manic business ideas
or half-hearted love notes
or whole-hearted thank yous
or slanted post-it-note scrawlings
or lines to ward off all this depression
or letters to my left brain so I don’t kill myself
or letters to my right brain about how best to do it
I don’t write poems, I write short speeches that nobody hears
