I Am a Poet

I am a poet
who doesn’t write poetry

No, that’s not true
I am a poet
incapable of writing poetry

that’s not true either
I am capable
but my mind cannot go there
to that creative alcove
where my poetry takes shape
swims and lives

instead, my mind sits
frozen by depression
awaiting an image or phrase
to ignite and free it

I am capable
I am a poet

I am
