Group Poem #5 false starts

False Starts
Group Poem


Let’s try again
fix the sin

maybe drink some

maybe that was the
problem to begin

Did I go to far
I thought it was my time
Picked the wrong phrase
cannot complete this rhyme

shit, I came.
What a shame, so much
to do, show, and,
see and sift and shrink
and absorb and attract and


Simon never said, “Go.”  But
I took a step anyway

I didn’t add to
tonight’s group poem,
too much pressure

Group poems are like group sex
is best anonymous
and sweaty
crooked eyed.
