Writing Advice 3

You don’t need a muse,
what you need is at least
one person you go do fun
activities with, visit the zoo,
pig out at the buffet,

the lemon-drizzled salmon,
the stone in your shoe,
the seed throwing contest
you accidentally started,
and there you go.
One day at a time.

because you wanted to capture
it perfectly in words later
and their camera’s quality
showed the texture
of the seed imprints better
