just write

just write whatever comes out
any words that choose to gather and
find themselves on the page
that rhyme or irritate
that sound pretty or crass
that look good in between the lines
just write.
write for 5 minutes or 10 if you’d like
about mice or men
moats or flies
about rainbows and fairies
or toothpicks and hoes
just write.
don’t think that hard about syntax and prose
about rhythm or syllables at all
just write.
tell stories. tell lies.
be real or fake.
just create whatever you’d like.
and when this exercise in words is said and done
everything ends up
just perfectly right.
