The Poetically Impaired

by Jim Grisham circa 1996

My generous teacher

let me tell you

of my lack of poetic skill

The world around

makes the poet respected

and leaves the poetically impaired


I wish I could write with the masters

and share the visions

that make them so great

even if they never went on a date

But until I learn to sit and write

through a thousand and one poems

I must regret, that,

I will forever be, poetically impaired.
