I have no wish (a poem)

One of those days…

I have no wish for words today
I have no wish for thoughts that stand in my way

I have no wish for what this seems to be
I have no wish for fits of fractured fantasy

I have no wish for the rain outside
I have no wish for the darkness inside

I have no wish for music, loud and bright
I have no wish for silence to get me through the night

I have no wish for profound or profane
I have no wish for unvarnished, blunt, or plain

I have no wish for the weight of expectation
especially my own, dragged from station to station

I have no wish for stories about the things I’ve missed
I have no wish for any of this

But I want more
