What Can I Write About?

A poem by Kevin Somers.

I wonder what to write about
And squeeze my spongy brain
'Til ideas start leaking out
And it all starts up again

I could write about love
But it's done close to death
Like a holey, old glove
Or a hooker on meth

I could write about rains
That fall from the sky
And streak across panes
And make windows cry

I could write about bliss
If I knew where to look
It's beyond an abyss
If I'm not mistook

I could write about booze
I could write about drugs
I could write about ooze
I could write about thugs

I could write about ointments
Or topical creams
I could write of appointments
With very good dreams

I could write of a son
Who died on a cross
And how the death of just one
Is so many's loss

All women are crazy
I could write about that
But then I'd just be
A mouse with scorned cats

I could write of our pets
And all their allure
I could write how the vets
Help keep us poor

I could write something civil
About my kids or a friend
Or I could write that this drivel
Has come to an end
