Without

Can I write a poem without?
Without birds, or clouds, or sky?
Without all those things you put
In poems, you write about in
Poems, like good times, good
Feelings, good thoughts, or not
So good, like death and dying,
Like things gone wrong, or
Things gone right, or big things
That matter, that matter a lot, or
Small things, that don’t matter,
Or perhaps they matter more
Because they are small and
Need someone to acknowledge
That they matter, that somehow
We all matter, even the small
Things, small people, small
Flowers, small birds, especially
The small birds. As they often
Have the sweetest songs.
