To Think With Invisible Ink

These words, to you, may sound absurd
I Haven’t wrote a single word
Since like September 23rd
Oh how I miss to twist and shape
And let the words from me escape
I am divinity’s mistake.
I am Perfection of the damned
A bastard child of Uncle Sam
My card is green as eggs and ham
Down Mango Street with Pen in hand
They call me Caramelo-Man
Sister Sandy’s bag of Candy
Give me something that can last me
I can’t write a single word
Maybe this was not my turn
But a lesson meant to burn
Like my kind will never learn
Momma pray for my return
May I write a single word.
Poverty, she’s always near
Almost like a puppeteer
All the things I tried to do
Failed to get away from you
Maybe fortune wasn’t meant
Think of times I badly spent
Searching for that perfect scent
To deter me from lament
Quickly as she came she went
Like a sin that won’t repent
This, to you, may sound absurd
I haven’t wrote a single word.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
