Stream

I started with an ink blister upon my heart. One ordinary day it burst; flowing forth a never ending stream. I would have drowned had I not found a purpose for the ink.

Writing

I can not stop until the stream dries up

Or

I find a never ending ream of blotting paper


If there are only seven stories
I’ve surely exhausted all aspects

Romanticism
Existentialism
Philosophy
Fantasy
Mythology
Modernity

The seventh eludes me

Ink stream flow
succinct answers

Anecdotes
are not always
Antidotes

If Angel’s close their wings when Demon’s close in; cocooning

What should mere mortals do?

Write

Or

Run

Could they be the same?

A romantic would lace the two into a fairytale

An existentialist would argue they are both negative and useless

The philosopher would ponder the two as intrinsically arbitrary

A minstrel would use a unicorn’s horn to write about the run from Draconville to Arthur’s court

Pan would play a tune on his pipe describing the writings of the Olympian Gods

I continue to run in my writing
