State of the Onion I

The words take control
demand to be written
I help guide them
dress them up
slim them down
searching for
clarity, brevity, emotion
hopefully all three
I’m not sure
where they come from
perhaps from the pains
and joys of my life
The words are the blood
in the vessels of my mind
just as feelings are
the blood feeding my soul
Is there any separation
between me and the words?

I envision this becoming more of a community feature than it is right now.  Well, as much as I can envision anything at this time in the morning.

Last night, when the cops woke us up responding to some sort of folderol across the street at oh-dark-thirty, I was zapped by the inspiration to call this Muse in the Morning.

Several hours later, it still sounds like a good idea, but the complete conception and decoration will probably take a weekend.

  1. For me this would be a good 6 am thing.  News reaction and getting down and dirty at 8.
