Poetry, have I ever written poetry?
I'm sure that I have scribbled down poetic thoughts
and that some of my lyrics and raps
could stand on their own without music.
But I am unaccustomed to sharing my poetic thoughts
unsupported by music, melody and performance, naked.
Fortunately most of my poems are currently on another continent
and I am temporarily saved from the embarrassment of sharing them.
But in time I will make the effort to overcome my shyness
and expose my naked thoughts to a disinterested world.
