Thanks to the cafe’s Donna Matthews who, this week, invites us to “…write about something that scares you, but you’d be willing to try.”
Poet’s Biggest Fear
He thinks that hanging out with the fictionauts and the prosers might damage his poetry. He’s afraid of writing a nightmare.
These days, instead of concentrating on linebreaks and imagery, he worries about commas and semicolons; thinks in dependent clauses; ponders parallel constructions and parenthetical prepositional phrases.
He fears his final draft will not sing; will only provide sedation.
A minstrel’s nightmare
Pick up the pen. Write.
