i am?

this is what i could've written if my english teacher'd given me a chance, but instead i got a framework and little blanks to fill in. agh.

all of the poets that could have been

today,

you handed out a sheet, 
little lines to print neat words on, 
sentence still in, 
as though we were to treat this
"poem" like it's a Mad Lib. 

so here, i'll write what i am, 
because apparently i'm not allowed to do that - 

so here's what i could have written, 
if you'd only given me the chance. 

The End
