Fresh paper

on the old clipboard

new gel pens

with blue ink

ready to cook up a poem

waiting for my muse.

Recipes for poetry:

.

Stir words with both hands,

mix into synaptic colors,

paint them on walls

again and again

until the room

screams in ecstasy.

.

Cook words in test tubes

over the burner

that is your heart,

then spread on toast

like marmalade

and feed the hungry.

.

Wrestle with words,

squeeze them,

break them into pieces,

pin them to the floor

of your solar plexus

and in the end

always let them win.
