“How do I know if I am ready to do poetry?”

How do you know?
You write it down.
You read it back.
You change one
word.
You change it
back.
Then, you repeat.
And repeat.
And repeat.
Again and again.
You write it down.
You read it back.
You change one
word
again and again
until all the words
you wrote are right.
That’s how
you know and I know and thee know.
You are already ready.
Do it. Do it.
Do it.
