An authenticity is found in writing; and therein lies my shape.
Like molten ore I have been pressed into other shapes
And at times have set hard in those partial outcomes..
Yet - when it’s all boiled down - to be authentic
- and I am fired to be so - then writing must be the core element.
It is an inner element, unchanging as my Sunday eggs.
As unchanging as toasted crumbs on the kitchen bench.
My urban new century living is just minus the bacon
Which once crisped and smoked the air at Sunday breakfast.
Minus the “unnecessary” as my mother was want to say
And, God knows, living our whole essential truth ,
Really does matter.
