Listen…

Rarely do I set aside time to write.  I take the time.  Forcing inspiration defeats the purpose.  Napkins, menus, gum wrappers, anything that can be written on is.  Whenever.  Wherever.  Even if only a sentence, fragment, or word, when it’s your time, it’s your time.
 


Relief

Most people
wake up
in the middle of the night
compelled to pee.

I woke up
in the middle of the night
compelled to write
about most people.
