Here is an important thing about me:
I don’t write poems.
I don’t understand the intricacies of writing them, I’ve never practiced, and I’m not all that good at them. Maybe because I’m fairly bad at simile and metaphor.
And yet, we have here a poem! Miracle of miracles! If you have any suggestions for improving it, I’d love to hear them. (I’m particularly irked that the first stanza is 10 lines and then 2, but the second stanza is 11 lines and then 2; I’d like to have them be more parallel.)
Edit: I’ve done a new draft of this poem!
