"Words, Words, Words," a Poem

When I first started writing professionally, I was not into poetry. I didn't like writing it, and I was not interested in writing any for publication. So, I focused in on my fiction writing, passing that around. However, I never could get any short prose published. Depressed, I started writing poetry just to pass around while I was working on my prose. Surprisingly, I found much more success with poetry than prose. Even today, it shocks me that I became a poet when I never intended to be one. This is the poem that thrust me into poetry publishing.
