The past compels a man to write

we seldom speak

GREAT exercise if you are facing writer’s block.  Circle random words in a page (great for people who have text books left over from college…) and create a poem. 

“We seldom speak its name –
at most,
the implication of pleasing,
without comfortable, reassuring, appreactions of life.

Even those creative
geniuses we know
sometimes feel an emotion
for praise.

We dwell upon
isolated prejudice.

Often the impressionable generation,
blind or timid,
lost tradition.

Obtain anyone who would
be a poet —
the past compels
a man to write.
