Inspiration

Someone suggested
I google
a bunch
of images
& then
write Shards
about them
instead of
tagging images
on after
I write
the Shards
& I
said no,
I can’t
do that,
it’s too
deliberate,
too much
like an
exercise,
& he
said what’s
wrong with
that &
I said
everything
& he
said the
images could
be your
inspiration
& I said
inspiration
doesn’t work
like that,
it comes
out of
the blue
& smacks
you in
the face,
& he
said well
whatever then,
not realizing
he’d become
an inspiration;
me either
until
just now.
