Poetry

Writers Block – Ivan Jenson

Ever so often
I unearth another
precious nugget of
worthless
wordplay which I cash
in by spilling it all
out on the page
and then I mine
my mind for another
rush of gold and
often come up
with only silver
or worse yet
copper
and then I feel
so pedestrian
digging into
the average
everyday sidewalk
for raw material
and then blame
myself for groveling
for the gravel
that I come up with
when it’s really
that asphalt’s
fault
