I Want Poetry

I want to write a poem
A poem to write I want
Right now
So badly
Very

So much do I want to write a poem
That I want absolutely nothing
Other than wanting to write a poem
NOTHING
Not even writing a poem
As many years as I've been writing poems
None of them had I longed to write as badly
As I do right now
On December 13 2005
4:14:15 pm
And right here
In downtown Los Angeles
California

So much
I so much want to write a poem
Want want want
So strongly do I want to write a poem
That except for my immeasurable desire to write a poem
Nothing else crosses to my mind

That is why I only write
How
Insatiably
Infinitely
Irresistibly
Ceaselessly
Morbidly
Beastly
Pathologically
Insanely
Eternally
Simply
I want to be a poem
