Writer’s block tackle

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 another sheet
crumpled
and tossed onto the fire

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 another stanza
started
and then discarded

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 another couplet
without rhythm
and lacking rhyme

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 another syllable
with no particular place to go

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 and as for punctuation?

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 even trying to
pair words
ends up just like our centre-backs …

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 lost, disorientated
easily split
by the ol’ one-two
let alone the infinitives

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 and though the synonyms
sync to soccer
the prose
just sinks

or stinks
