Take A Chance

Take A Chance

Every artist must take risks:
face into the mirror,
talk to the moment,
decide what to portray,
And move into action.

It is pure courage for poets
to create word-groups, moving
counter clockwise to logic.

Similar to building a snowball:
pick up strips of written things,
create a world
from the inside, out.

Throw it against the wall
while the ink is wet, it
stamps out a random mantra—
Take a chance.

Repacking it with new
wet words,
the globe is dropped on
white papers,
white on white.
