Can’t write a poem tonight, NaMoPo

It’s like being on a diet and eating Cheerios and skim milk
every morning for weeks because you know
how many calories a bowl of cereal has.
Because you don’t have to look it up on a calorie counter site.
Or make up a number to write down in a little yellow book.
And the milk will turn sour if you don’t drink it soon.
But who wants to read a poem about a bowl of cereal anyway.

So good night.
