What’s up? You must have something on your mind,
some statement or opinion for today.
Of course you do – you think and feel in kind
and attitudes developed on your way
by parents, mentors, or your own accord.
I’ve never met a soul without ideas.
It’s just that most are voiced at home, ignored,
or posted where they quickly disappear

I know a place where you can place your thought –
a compact safe with little writ upon it,
a composition wise and quickly wrought,
the perfect cage and case we call the sonnet.
I dare you to be careful, honest, fine –
and press today’s idea in fourteen lines.
