monitoring
the ups and
downs
of the
ridges of
mood

wanting
to keep
these
poems
clean
and simple
by way
of calling
them
notes—
which I
think
is what
got me
into writing
all along

notes
and open
thought

but also
writing
as a mad
solitary
hobby

do it long enough
it’s something
you’ll have
to see as even
a vice in yourself
in the most
tender moment
of reflection—
what are
my motives
as a writer
and in
saying aloud
“oh, I’m a writer”
?

it is a great thing
to write
to articulate, of course
the downside
is that you want to
go into a cave
and hide away
in order to… what?
develop
the “craft”?

the answers
aren’t clear

or I say they
aren’t

the hours
go by
