my lips to your ear-_--

West 4th Street Station: January 2014
Several people have written about being blocked. I hope these poems they write for a stranger help loosen things up. It is fascinating to see the struggle. Will they write it or won’t they?

She stopped me one
day on the subway
and asked me to
write a poem
Freaked and anxious
I put pen to paper
like I put my lips
to your ear and
hope that this is
something you’ll hear
One day maybe I’ll
have the confidence
to not hide behind
the wall and come
out and say it.
Writer’s block, man
It’ll get you.
