why i write

you ask me what inspires me

so i will tell you again-

i got poetry running through my veins-

i eat words and breathe analogies

have verbs for breakfast

and synonyms for snack-

drink nouns and think antonyms-

chew on haikus all day long;

then when i’m full-

i release it like a big burp-

and BAM!

just like that-

i got a poem.
