Right Here/Write Now (pt1)

Grab a pen
Bleed it dry
To paper

Let it run
Till empty
Till you’ve emptied everything

Leave nothing behind
Let everything
On each leaf

Be brutal
With every stroke
Slash each dash
Stab each dot

Express violently
Every silence
Every bitten tongue thought
Every bottled up word
In loud screaming ink

Be brutally honest
Recklessly torrid
And say everything
Every
Little
Thing
That you meant to say but didn’t
That you should have said but couldn’t

Let it leak from the bottom of the well
Slow and steady
Like warm
Thick
Molasses
Let it ooze
Catharsis
In quill
Then breathe.
