All the Dirty Dishes

Birds fly into
concrete, but none
near my house,
and where does

this purple reality
get shot from,
this one which
orders me,

Do not write.

There is nothing
worthy in my palette
when I don’t
describe my dark

universes, and all
the dirty dishes
come back dirtier,
less shapely, less useful.

No more terrifying
hatred, sir? These dank
alleys where my chaotic
paths lead, I shall
not poison.

    Exactly. Nice emails: why? See above. Do not (disapprove, bewail, grieve, regret, or try to explain) write. This is magic Carl, you may well be quoted.

    So very excellent to see you back on-line Carl and writing again, so stunningly. You inspire always, however long your silences.

    O’ shut up and write. Though ‘D’ was more polite then ‘eye’.

    “Do not write.
