I am.

The basic principle of creativity
starts with me
acknowledging this very simple
yet somehow
convoluted concept,
as though something needs to follow that
to qualify
to quantify
to quell the mutterings
which suggest that’s not enough,
there must be more.

This conflicted sense of self
smug and well versed
in the art of the undermine
And as though unrehearsed,
utters the line

Are you though?

Yes.
I am.

So unless you’re here to help
Shut the fuck up and get out of the way.
We’ve got work to do.

Happy birthday to me.
