being

he has written the line
but it doesn’t read right

he has read it now
three times

each reading
is a near thing

each rewrite
is so close

and he wonders
if the difference
between a good thing
and a great thing
is a matter of

heart

of will

of commitment

his best work
flows from a wild abandon
but with this piece
he has been trying
to write
trying
to read

perhaps

perhaps it is his role now
to abandon
himself

to buy
the image
heart and soul

perhaps he has to stop
being the writer
the reader

perhaps
to create the living work
he needs to
be
