Poem: If I Want To Write A Story

If I Want To Write A Story

If I want to write a story do you know what comes out instead?
Sometimes a scribble that I throw away.
Sometimes a fragment that I realize is useless the next day.
But also…

Sometimes

Poetry,
yes poetry.

With punctuation as flippant as the breeze
And capitalization odd enough to make brains freeze

Truly,
sometimes when I want to write a story
Poetry is all I find.
Yet I don’t feel confined.

Truly,
Because maybe I just have a poet sort of mind.

-E.M. Price
