I said “Inspiration is like
A lump of clay – it has to be
Molded. It has to be shaped.”
“Inspiration takes time,” You said
“Like waiting for a bus.”
Well, honey, I’ve a penchant
For missing the bus. So I walk
How do you think I stay this thin?
A balanced diet doesn’t hurt either
Pot of black coffee. Two packs of smokes.
Despondency in generous portions.
That’s how I stay so thin
That – and walking.
A strong set of legs
Will get you far. A pretty face
Will get you farther
Which explains why you always
Have to wait up for me –
