Poem – never knew

Climb into the cubburd.
Close the door

I’m going to tell you
about the time I wouldn’t
let myself write

I had to go to the bathroom
While going
I told myself I needed breakfast

While eating breakfast
I told myself I needed to clean the house

While cleaning
I told myself
I needed to work

While working I told myself
I needed to exercise

While exercising
I felt shame for not writing

I cannot write

I am no good
what would it matter

It is dark in this cupboard

This is when I realized-
I never knew

-M. Taggart
