I wrote a poem

I was listening to NPR
on the drive home
this evening
and they spoke

of Stephen Crane,
master of short poems.
And as the tail-lights
blazed before me

Red, like courage,
I thought, O!  Yes!
I'll do it!  Tonight,
I'll write a poem

shorter than a sonnet, longer than haiku!
...but already I can see that I have
                                      failed.
