If I was to write a last poem.
It would be the best poem I ever wrote.
It would be the most meaningful thing.
It would be incredible and heartwarming.
It would provoke tears.
It would make babies.
It would spark conversation.
It would.
But this is not my last poem.

So it can be terrible.
And I’ll allow it.
