Procrastination poetry


I like to write poetry

ever since I was small

and my poem about colours

graced the wall

of my headmaster's office


I like to write poetry

even though I have no idea

what I'm doing

and everything comes out trite

and stiff and a little bit cringe


I like to write poetry

ever since I realised

I could write

about toad girls and cherry pits

and ant-decapitating flies


I like to write poetry

even though I should be

working, not

procrastinating and playing

with words on my mobile phone.
