TRAIL MIX
WHY I WRITE

It’s a need
to pick up a pen
when the mind is running
when the echo of thoughts
bounce from wall to wall
when no one is around to hear
when I may even be doing
something else
but the words are
turning somersaults
lining up into sentences

Then there is a yearning
for ink and paper
an itch
to pick up a pen

It’s a need that includes you
because if it weren’t for you
there’d be no need
