The Lack of Poetry

with a hole in my heart

where words are supposed to fit

I yearn for missing poetry

from someone never met

 

one day my heart will be consumed

eaten by this unfed hunger for more

all that poetry will be lost

smashed against my empty ribs in transit

from one hollow space to another

 

I will remain a sack of bones in skin

cushioned with fat so no one can see

the lack of me inside of me

the lack of me in your poetry
