it's hard to think on your own

Updated: Jun 17, 2020

it’s hard to think on your own

think back to the other day

when she asked:

what’s the opposite  

of a pufferfish?

& instead of butt-cheek,

sponge, or sea-slug

you shouted:

my name’s not Dave.

consider how this could relate

to other things like yourself,

how you want to write poems

but don’t know what to feed them.
