Dogs 2005


I go days
sometime weeks
without a thing to write
nothing to transcribe
or leave for others
to read

a couple of words
or phrases appear
from out of nowhere
to bounce around
in my brain
my hand
finally excretes them
to paper

I certainly
don't understand
the primary process
but I know for a fact
that it's nothing
put in motion
by me

with writing
I feel less
the creator
and more
a willing dupe
for whatever it is
that wants
to be written

I am really
not a writer
as such
just simply
an occasional victim
of literary assault
and reverie
