Writing Instructions

It’s a fist fight

They’ll try to take it from you

The world will conspire against you

The universe’s cruel attention on you alone

And then it will be you

                        Standing in your way

 

All you’ll want is a stab at it

To get where you’re going

The walk that’ll span a lifetime

And it’s all you want

            To die on the road

            Legs weak and mind turned to mush

                                    (all the good stuff already on a page)

            A ditch your grave

                                    A sorry pile of books for a tombstone

 

It’s fucking war

Everyday a 9 round brawl

                        No gloves

                        No ref

The gods’ll put mountains shaped

                        Like the bottle

                        Or people

                        Some’ll look like you

And those will be the toughest

They’ll know your weaknesses

So you’ll have to fight dirty

And smear the blood on the pile

                                    Of books

                                    Your tombstone
