Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing Lasts Forever

Write something, he urged
Make it absurd
Lines that don’t match
Words that aren’t words

Something obtuse
Or maybe acute
Angles and tangles
Throw in a boot

I threw him a look
Then tossed him a glare
I can’t write poems
I don’t have the flair

I could give it a try
It might take a while
He just shrugged
Said with a smile

I have popcorn and chips
And even some wine
If it takes forever together
We’ll be just fine
