Making Meaningful Connections

The writing muscle


Pumps ideas from gray matter


The writing muscle

Is a narsisist

Caring not for other obligations

Pouting when ignored

The muscle

requires attention, exercise, nurturing


Sometimes it even demands control like

Symbiotic partnerships


And then, like the  actions

Demanded by a well pumped bicep or quadrocep

It will tremble with effort and delight

Overtake the writer’s chore list


Odorous Laundry piles ignored

Phone calls delayed

And an occasional burnt  dinner entrée fall victim

To the whims of

The  Schwarzenegger Muse.
