There's No Such Thing as Writer's Block

There’s No Such Thing As Writer’s Block

There’s no such thing as writer’s block.
Wait patiently for a poem to drop.
There’s no such thing as writer’s block.
Just wait and scribble and breathe.
Dot your i’s and cross your t’s.
Stop thinking that it must have this or that
to rank significant,
worthy of a scholarly recipient.
A fly will buzz, a fan will drone.
Tell the muse there’s somebody home.

No,
Make her think you’re drifting,
vacant.
Sometimes she drops in unexpectedly.
Never on cue.

There’s no such thing as writer’s block.
Don’t let the ink get dry.
Write, write, write, write.
March the rhythm by.
Can a muse refuse a cadence?
Will she just pass by?

Write, write, write, write.
Your mind’s a metronome.
Read it again, then one more time.
Listen to the fan drone.

Tap, tap, tap, tap.
Don’t worry, it will comeā€¦
after a load of clothes, perhaps,
after the coffee’s done.
There’s no such thing as writer’s block,
just muses that like to roam.
