How many pages lay empty?
How many sonnets unwritten, ladies unloved
All for the love of not calling it a poem
Paragraph, prose even a couplet
But don't ever say poem

    Rad, I like the idea you've got going here.

    I'm interested in this concept...why not call it a poem? Why not write anything? (The first questions that pop up in my mind.) I wonder if you would consider writing a follow-up poem going into more detail about this...

      Hi Ceara, thanks for the question. The origin came from being insecure about saying I write poetry when i was a younger fella. And as silly as it is I probably wasn’t the one who thought that way. The idea of a follow up is intriguing too, thank you for that.

      Ah okay. You definitely weren't the only one thinking that! Thanks!
