WRITE HERE
(10/17/18)

writing
about writing
seems
a cop out

a weakness
of will

but when
the activity
takes up
a significant
amount
of my time

it too
becomes a target
of dissection
as much
as any other
subject

I have
never claimed
to be clever

insightful

certainly
not
original

words
are my way
of exploring

of explaining

primarily
to myself

all of those
incongruities
of life

at least
those
that do not
seem to fit
into my
world

and since
I
do not seem
to fit

everything
that I sense
contains
some element
of personal
doubt

of personal
angst

if I
do not belong
here

then
where?

only within
this black
on white

apparently

my haven

my refuge

my therapy
