your enchanting ghost

five minutes ago i wrote this in red pen

January 31, 2019


always i’m trying to write a poem
do you see how everything i say is dipped in red ink
i do not want my tongue to become that killing hand
so i write poems about cobweb lips
instead of the insects trapped in them
i do not know much of anything only that
there are so many birds i want nothing to do with
why can’t i write a poem in green
why must i cut down the tree to not hear them.
part of a larger collection i'm working on. ~exciting~

    OK, now I'm mad because this has eight likes and ONE comment because this is GOOD. I wish there was a way to highlight lines like you can in reviews without reviewing, but then, I'd be highlighting all of this. I suppose if I had to choose, though, then the second line particularly speaks to me.
