Question - Poem by Patrick O'Reilly
How do you start a poem?
Is it something bred inside you,
An Immaculate Conception
Waiting for a nativity scene?
Or does Christmas Day come first,
And then you speak your holy hymn?
Or could it be just on a whim?
A switch you can flick on and off,
Praying, in foredoomed hope, that your bulb
Never burns out
Before you can make everyone see?
