now is another time
I have to get up from my writing
to do something
much more necessary
while living here on this earth.
I have to use the bathroom

plenty of people
alive today
and throughout time
have gone their whole lives
without scribbling a word
without putting together a sentence
or even a single line of poetry

and they have done fine

but for some of us
poetry is a type of drug
a thing we are hooked on
like crack
or alcohol

but my hope is that
when I get back from the bathroom
my words
will have more meaning
than they have at the moment
because right now

I am full of shit
