New Deal


New Deal
/ New Year / 21st Dec 2012

The muse has said I don't have to write things down.
If I can think through the piece, in words, from beginning to end,
then pen, paper, typing, need not be involved.

So this morning – 15th Jan – in bed, I wrote a poem
dreamy romantic
It flowed from descriptive into surreal
and then words 
with good sounds
assembled into grammatically correct but nonsense phrases
and back again

I knew I would destroy it if I got up to write
but the words were there
precisely

I think it was a beautiful poem
I hope you enjoyed it
