Things to Write About

Write about
the minuscule
write about
the particular
write about
the itch
in your
scalp &
the dreams
in your
head the
horror &
the occasional
glimpse
of joy.

 

Write about
the blood
pulsing thru
your body
with a
mind of
its own
about
the way
a baby
smiles at
you &
sweeps your
heart clean
of sorrow.

 

Write about
that or
don’t stand
under
the sun
instead with
your
eyes closed
& if
you stand
there long
enough you’ll
begin to hum.

 

It’s the
things you
don’t understand
that make
you what
you are.

 

You can’t
plant a
tree but
you can
plant a
seed &
then plant
a sapling
& grow
a rain
forest.

 

These are
your powers.

 

Shed your
skin
like a
snake fly
off like
a butterfly
leave the
world
in awe
under your
moon-struck
departure.

 

Once you
begin there’s
no
stopping you.
