Scrabble

I write poems
“…try writing a short story”
too many words
and complete sentences
“Try, just try”
you don’t understand
when I die and go to the holding platform
there will be an accounting
A frowning St. Michael will say,
You used too many words in your life
You need to make 8,000,000 words
If you don’t you will , well you know
Okay, Okay, how do I make up those words
“…come over here to this table…”
I did and what I saw was an infinite number of Scrabble tiles

“sit down,” he said and “…get to work”
