How To Write a Poem

it is addressed thusly:
A thought.
it reads:
Writing a poem you see
Is an act of utmost simplicity;
Don't overthink it? true --
Go where the thought carries you
But before all of that, way back
Verses laid stack upon stack
Must fill all the hidden spaces
Nigh spill out of inconvenient places
Of the heart? One might say
Your middle is right where they stay
So maybe it's life's punch in the gut
That makes all the poems come up.
