Hollow

I am going to write a
fucking goddamn poem
is not the best way
to begin a poem
because it carries the air
of desperation
and urgency
which is so unattractive
to anyone you’d like to
attract into your chamber
of words – words that
never adequately convey
how full of empty
it is possible to be.
