Writer’s Cramp

The only thing for sure

in the writer’s world

Is that he owns the words

and is responsible for what he writes

like sound bites

he can rearrange words anyway he wishes

That’s his only control over the thing

besides washing his own dishes

when publishing you unleash it like a wild bird

into the air

where it all goes

you never have any say

never having heard

like an escaped Parrot

Squawking words

You didn’t write

with a pencil anymore

you get writer’s cramp

now, there’s Carpal Tunnel

you get with your wrist

and then there’s

losing your mind

which is the worst

through apathetic


just when you think

all is fine

your brain bursts
