The Writer’s Day Off

Not one word
is to be written today
like the words
you see here

- - so is it impossible
for any writer
to write a poem
about the writer’s
day off ?


Being a sorcerer
like most writers
I abruptly
dodge this

So be it

& no murmur
not even a burp
fart or cough
is going to escape my
literary body today

Nothing but silence
will ring in
good peoples ears

& The poem called
“The Writer’s Day Off”
will be presented
to blind onlookers
deaf listeners
and unknown geniuses
and the like

While silence can only
be described
by silence itself

So what you
see/hear here
is but a dream, baby
