WRITING

They tell me that now
is a good time for writing.


They say that 
with all this empty time


what is better or more natural
than for a writer to write?


What they don’t know
is that I’m too busy to try. 


I’m far too busy
refreshing the page


for how many have died.
As I lie awake on the sofa


for half the night
I’m actually very busy,


tangled up with the knowledge
that next might be my turn


to feel the loss
of something real. 


So as I lie here, 
the months stretching out


into fields of nothing, 
I’m really far too busy

for writing.
