Everything it's not

In which we practice reverse psychology

Even poor poems are hard to write sometimes. (And this is bad because?) Isn't this what we bought frig magnet poetry kits for? But maybe we are writing the same poem over and over, using the same words. Which got us to thinking about the words that came with the poem kits that we swear we won't use. When we think about using these words in poems -- even bad poems! -- we just laugh. So count yourself lucky, dear readers reader, for these are words you won't be reading: no fertile bees, no noble sanctuaries, no crap pie. No verdant bucolic beautifulness. And thank God, no squirrels.

Because it seems just as random as the words not written and because we're now hooked on Hozier

Feeling more human and hooked on her flesh I / Lay my heart down with the rest at her feet / Fresh from the fields, all feeder and fur tires / Bloody and raw, but I swear it is sweet
