I am not careful enough for self-inspection
and yet self-aware enough to know when
self-care turns to selfish – when 
self-love is narcissism
and who am I to say otherwise
who am I to disagree with what 
has been laid out by those before me
the creative process consists:
of coffee and the urge to smoke
cleaning for six hours 
and being far too tired
to write a single word
the coffee is too bitter, the writer
too self-involved

nothing will get written today
and you will stare still 
at a blank page
