This poem is not the answer to learning how to write a good poem. I do not want to operate out of spite, a machine. A poem is just an excuse to tell you things and I can't stop talking. I fill each and every space with another way of saying nothing. Here, I should probably emphasize the point again, which is that art only succeeds when it completely surrenders itself to its audience and leaves nothing in progress. I am afraid to tell a lie. I will edit a poem until there is nothing there at all. When I write I imagine what my friends will say and I am sorry. I am trying to be a better poet because it seems correct.

I WISH I COULD BE A POET WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT THE FOLLOWING:
