If you’re crazy enough

to want to become a writer

of books

of poems

then welcome to this delicious insanity

To a place where you will stare at nothing

…for ages …. longing for inspiration

And when you find it- taking a pull like a bum on wine bottle

Where you may argue with your characters

-even threatening to kill them off

…if they misbehave

Sometimes, you do….and the police won’t charge you

Where you plot and twist words until they make some sense…. giving your imagination a lying tongue… and God won’t judge you

Where you’ll build a world of words

…precariously perched on the hope

of a decent book
