Tongues That Tie Cherry Stalks and the Eaters of the Cherry.

Writers are not people

who are good at expressing themselves.

Writers are shambolic

things that sit alone

In a quiet

room for hours,

with anything that stains a mark

on something else, because they forget

Too easy,

to make just one sentence

Right,

or to make just one sentence

Theirs.

I’ve heard people

talk

better than any script.

I’ve read writing

that isn’t anything.

And the writers envy

the talkers.

And the talkers are scared of dying,

because the moment

belongs to those talkers,

but

eternity

to the

writers.

  1. yes, very cool. it helps being an only child spending time talking to yourself for hours. or having a neighbor who’s one as well and spending hours together doing your own version of lon chaney jr movies.
