You're It, The Secret
"You’re It, The Secret"
a whole new world
You … exist
the game is ‘resist’
such an anxious world
the questions forever
your gardens soiled and turned
new seeds for blooming
your muddied waters
become in your mind
through the Consomme
holds it all
seen by few
seen by some
a true gift
in open hands
the mirage disappears
opening a door
to a new, strange land
whenever you meet
a Ghost, don't run away
Walk straight through
and it will
before you there remains
the true path
It exists and
It is very clear
(LadyLabyrinth / 2020)

"No one is more dangerously insane
than one who is sane all the time:
he is like a steel bridge without flexibility,
and the order of his life is rigid and brittle."
“Advice? I don’t have advice.
Stop aspiring and start writing.
If you’re writing, you’re a writer.
Write like you’re a goddamn death row inmate
and the governor is out of the country
and there’s no chance for a pardon.
Write like you’re clinging to the edge of a cliff,
white knuckles, on your last breath,
and you’ve got just one last thing to say,
like you’re a bird flying over us
and you can see everything, and please,
for God’s sake, tell us something
that will save us from ourselves.
Take a deep breath
and tell us your deepest, darkest secret,
so we can wipe our brow and know that we’re not alone.
Write like you have a message from the king. Or don’t.
Who knows, maybe you’re one of the lucky ones
who doesn’t have to.”
