If I could write

If I could write a poem
that rhymes, like those in tomes
lining dusty bookstore
shelves; I'd even pour
all of my thought
into a poem that's not
free verse. Or maybe metered lines
that, juxtaposed like tines
create a fork, will build
a useful verse to still
dis-ease, or maybe quell
a fear. If nothing else,
I'd like to write some good
coherent words. If I could
write a poem that rhymes -
oh, well, perhaps another day.
