The trick.

the trick is to leave the poem alone,
make it an orphan by choice

the trick is to treat a poem
like an open wound
left to rot on some maniac's thighs
held captive in a abandoned asylum

and finally, you come around to it
after days, maybe weeks or months
or just a minute later
and you put a full stop.
