what I have I been doing?
not writing
not writing
not writing.

untangling cords
hanging out
getting drunk
forgetting mail
buying tickets
packing bags
losing time

what I have been doing
not writing
living.
I have been living.

saying words wrong instead of misspelling them.
forgetting friends, not poets.
watching clouds instead of television.
I have not seen this computer screen
in a week.
