SC Flynn

Cinco Poemas

Burial

 

Going 

going

gone

the author is gone

do you need him

 


 

Telepathic Poem

 

Read my mind

and then write down

the poem you find there

I leave it up to you

whether to claim the credit 

or not 



 

Conformity

 

I once received

an anonymous poem that was so good

that I had to put in

some mistakes

and take out some ideas and feelings

to make it acceptable



 

A Poetry Reading

 

The poet sits

not saying a word

The silence

contains more envy,

desire and anger

than he could ever 

have recited



 

Trust Me

 

I sat for hours

creating a poem

in my head

It was so complete,

so perfect

that I didn’t need

to write it down
