write better


i would write better
if i read more.
or read at all.
have one voice
inside my head
and he’s said it all.

used to read
a book a week
on the train.
Brooklyn-Queens,
Queens to Brooklyn
rinse, repeat.

i would write better
if i wrote more.
or wrote at all.
i would write for hours
back in Idaho.

had the blog
’bout the superhero
comic dog.
traded sleep
for Tumblr posts.

i would write better
if i did more.
or did anything.
spend more time
in front of screens,
started as a kid.

started off with
a Christmas gift.
i was twelve,
got vanilla Warcraft,
it became my world.

funny you can feel
when your brain
begins to melt.

mine has been
a puddle,
think i need
some help.

think i write better
when i need some help

“write better”
