What Is There To Write Poetry About

What is there to write poetry about?
The endless monsoonal humidity,
The triple digit heat clear into night
That starts again before itís time to eat.

Itís too damn hot to eat, you kiddiní me,
What is there to write poetry about?
That I keep wipiní down with alcohol,
That I canít get more naked than I am.

Thereís nothiní sexy to me come the night.
A minute on the phone ďI gotta go!Ē
What is there to write poetry about?
You said youíd call, I slept right thru it all

If I seem grumpy, Iím way overdue.
We used to have alotta time to spare,
But itís so hot I miss your spoken verse.
