Poem of the Day

I'm Like
(by Edward McCrorie)

I'm like God:  how did I do that?
She's like Wow, that's neat.
I want it all spelled out.  But she's like
Dont be a language 

freak.  I'm like Words are me
somehow, my own head.
Until there's doubt like, silence.  She's like
Why let it bug you?

I let it bug me.  What am I like,
like really?  If silence
and sound split what's left?  I'm like
What is my own thing?

She's like Be like me, stay loose,
don't fight it.  I fight it.
She's like Think about space, far out.
Be like nothing.

(from Gone Games, Brick House Books 2010)
