I Need To Write A Few Lines Now


To return to and calm myself
To be myself-

I need to write a few lines now
So a sense of ‘total uselessness'
Will not be the beginning of my day-

I need to write a few lines now
To feel I somehow still am-

I need to write a few lines now
To warm up for the long work day ahead-

I need to write a few lines now
To feel I can still write-

I need to write a few lines now
To assure myself
I am and will continue to be-

I need to write a few lines now
To write a few lines now-

I need to write a few lines now-
