On Talking and Walking

That age-old “write-prompt” “piece-of-advice” is back again to haunt you, to inspire you with existential terror, to send your “creative juices” shriveling back into the dirt that they came from, before sending you squirming tail-first round in circles. Assume the fetal position and write.

“Write what you know”,
They say as if they
can know what I’ll say
if I say what I know

“Say, what do you know?”
say I to they
as they say what they think
that I know.

“If I say what I think
that I know, you would know
that I think that I know
what I say,

but I say what I think,
and you know, I don’t know
if I always
think what I say!”
