A Rather Testy Q&A

Where do you get your ideas?  she asked.

Oh, down at Fifth Street and Main:

There’s a guy there with a flatbread truck

Who has an extra brain.

What time of day do you write?  she asked.

Well I have a schedule serene:

I write when I’m waking and when I’m asleep

And everywhere else in-between.

Don’t you find rhyme artificial?  she asked.

I guess, just like poetry is —

If you do not like it, then don’t read my blog

And also: go mind your own biz

    I just giggled outloud, Last night in my sleep, my brain was trying desperately to write a poem about McDonald’s golden arches. I was so irritated, I kept waking up so I wouldn’t participate.
