Some Want to Know

Some want to know:
How long does it take
to compose a poem?
He used to be asked
how long it takes
to write a sermon?
Compose a poem?
Write a sermon?
Compose a sermon.
Write a poem.
Compose and write;
write and compose.
Prose and poetry;
poetry and prose.
Who’s counting?
Who knows?
A second?
A minute?
An hour?
A day?
A lifetime?
An eternity
some might say,
and to that he would say,
“Whatever you say
is simply a-okay.
I just want to read
and say
the poem and listen
to the sermon
and hope I think
about them for at
least a day.”
