"That's the way that go!" August Wilson


You don’t have to work too hard
with poems that come from me,
I’m kind of like those basketball
players coming out of high school,
the one-and-done ones,
on their way to the pros.
Poems though, aren’t
on their way to anywhere else
and I’m good with that.
Good with my poems too.
They are what they are,
arriving daily. I don’t
always get them written
and that, well that takes
my breath away, yeah,
knowing they came through me
as they disappeared.
