the novel

write your novel she said

always banging on

how poetry was beneath me

I had more to give

full fleshed out ideas narrative

is it that you’re lazy?

was another jibe

& my only ever response

that I’m trying to connect

put down the line

people ideas vignettes

I come across

each day all the time

interesting people

the truth in their our lives

& she’d be frustrated all over

again & again

so I’d say this novel

write yours why don’t you?

to which she’d sniff

kiss me soft sigh soft oh you

do I have to explain?

I guess yes you do
