Writing

images[5]

I tweak and suffer and stew over every word
choice and scour the internet and submit and
query and rewrite and dish the pith and bless
each submission with burnt sage and nothing

and then something but not THE thing and it’s
worse than the nothing

almost

and to quit would be satisfying but just to
me and unsharable with anyone and not
the way to go

  1. Oh I hear you! I can relate very well to this. Especially

    “and then something but not THE thing and its worse than nothing”

    Poetry sure isn’t an easy business. And in my case, I’m trying to write a poem a day for a year.. Feel free to visit my blog anytime.

    Wonderful poem, great work!
