so late it's early

there is this trick to writing poems
you don't even have to rhyme
i know people who can pound out feelings
with words that cost just a dime

the trick is also a rule
not the kind that you should break
but if you really pay attention
this one weird trick is all it takes

you don't have to click a link 
or go through a paywall
i won't even ask for your phone no. or email
this trick is on display for all

so let's not waste each other's time
let's have it here and right now
the trick is to be naked in your poems
and let the truth bleed out

rip of the mask
your only task 
embrace the fear
just be, here.
