advice

Young fella
not yet growing
a full beard
asked for advice
on writing the poems
I could’ve said
write from the heart
anybody would’ve
told the poor fool that
or maybe
just don’t
instead
paint
play the guitar
get a proper job
anything
but put down
what your heart
feels
so
I told him
Write
what you
need said
want to read
so that
you
are embarrassed
to let your girl
your family
relations
read what you’ve
written
there
I thought
that should fix
him.
