Fitness Program for Poets


I said “Inspiration is like
A lump of clay – it has to be
Molded. It has to be shaped.”
                      “Inspiration takes time,” You said
                      “Like waiting for a bus.”
Well, honey, I’ve a penchant
            For missing the bus. So I walk
               How do you think I stay this thin?
                     A balanced diet doesn’t hurt either
                     Pot of black coffee. Two packs of smokes.
                               Despondency in generous portions.
                    That’s how I stay so thin
                                                That – and walking.

A strong set of legs
              Will get you far. A pretty face
      Will get you farther
                 Which explains why you always
                                                      Have to wait up for me –
