Dead Lines

When you’re desperate
and the page is blank
write writer’s block
in stanza form
couple couplets
file and rank

Fill in space
as best you can
make believe
you’re here to stay
deserters are the first to fall
blanks fired so it’s okay

Trenches divide our thoughts
soon to spill out
just the same
solider through
that wordless hell
don’t forget to sign your name
