Words Like These Either May or May Not Mean a Thing

i sat down
to write
words
in defiance
of my feeling
that words
like action
are
meaningless
plastic
trophies.

we dangle.
importance.
from edges.
of

this,
the only part
i liked
before
closing the
laptop
and then
sprawling
face-first
on the bedroom
floor.

that was
hours ago, but
i still
feel
the same.
and yet
here i am, laptop
opened
again
and words:
littering the shelf.

now i realize: i don’t write
to make a difference;
i write
because i can.
