Writing My First Poem For This

Maybe I should just shut my eyes and write
Maybe I should just give myself five minutes and a topic
From the news
Or from my life
Rutgers baseball couch is homophobic?
How hard poems are to write?
How shy I get writing them?
Maybe the relationship between those two things:
how a homophobic coach is like a id likr a shy nt-rely-a-poet
Can you see where I started closing my eyes?

I bet he didn't pause before composing. I bet he wasn't afraid
to say
what he meant
There is a lot of video tape. To prove that.
