sometimes i write a poem
 1
and then ask myself
 2
what is it about
 3
and i explain it to myself
 4
and those words
 5
often
 6
times become the poem
 7
sometimes i am approached
 8
with small talk which is nice
 9
but then i ask myself
 10
after
 11
words what the hell was i thinking
 12
before being so rudely interrupted
