I think it was an interesting point made by the interviewer that I was not sure I could ever do that again.
I was still looking at it like I had to get over the hump of that and then, hopefully, have a couple of words for it, and I was like, “OK, yeah, yeah.
Maybe I can get back to that, but I don’t know.
I’m not sure if I can.”
I didn’t know if I was even capable of writing it, so I kind of threw it out there like, you know, I could do it, I just didn’t think I could.
And that’s where I’m at today.
I think I’m pretty good at writing a poem, and the other day, I was watching the new season of The Simpsons, and it was really fun.
I didn, you can’t imagine, it was a new episode, but it was like the episode where they do the Krusty Krab, and Homer goes back in time to get his mom’s birthday cake.
It was really funny.
And I’ve had other experiences with my poetry, too, but in a really good way, because I was a little kid and I used to write poetry and it would just be a way for me to just be able to communicate with my imagination, and be able write poems.
I had never done that, I had no experience, and then the other thing is, if you go back and look at some of the poetry I’ve written, it’s all been in the service of some kind of self-reflection, or at least a sort of reflection on myself.
I guess that’s one of the things that I’ve always tried to do, I want to be able, you see, to be the artist that I am, and, you don’t have to be a poet to be an artist, I suppose.
But you know what I mean?
That’s what it is.
It’s just an outlet.
And, you do have to find your voice, too.
I mean, I’m still, you look at the word “poetry” and I can be, you are, a poet.
But, you also have to get into that space.
I would argue that poetry can be more of a tool than a weapon.
It can be a tool for self-expression.
It is a tool that I use, and if I’m being honest, I don’s know how to use it any more.
And maybe I can.
I’ll leave it at that, though.
It might not be a perfect tool, but at least I can do it.
It doesn’t take a lot of time, you have to practice, you’ve got to do it a lot, but if you’re a realist, you should be able.
I’d love to talk more about poetry and the art of writing, but right now, I have so much to do and I’m feeling like I’m missing a lot.
But at least now I can have a bit of self reflection.
That’s the only thing I can think of.
