In Shape to Create

In Shape to Create

You might not be a Poet,

(I might not be one, either)

but how fit must one be
to tie two words 
together to describe the 
inexplicable
for which we strive–

the most efficient lyric quality
while living out our daily lives!

Fitness for Poets?

Now don’t get bogged–

Poet
Artist
Writer
Creative 

Simple nouns saturated with
all sorts of pressure // 
to consider yourself such 

is NOT 
what takes nerve; no, 

that is a matter of doing.

Meanwhile, our big

to DO
has always been to 
MAKE 

and thus, if we 
are to maintain this 
perpetual state, 
let us borrow now
from the world of Athletes –

Fitness for Poets!

Find us training daily for 
consistency and pace;
it’s what we do to 
stay in shape

so that we might 
convincingly coddle 
effectively fluid 
and in the least painful way
tickle ourselves into 
carrying on
with heeding the call of
our calling…

come what may!
