Flood

Flood



& When I set up, sit down,

To write the next great American short story.

I have a drink,

Strictly to get the juices flowing.

& when the river halts, I flood it.

& when the dam bursts & putting paper to pen went in vain,

I celebrate my humanness.


 

It’s a give and take.

For the river always flows poem to paper;

Rarely story to paper.


 

But when it flows,


 

It is beautiful.
