Writers Anonymous: A 3 Step Program (by Quentin Huff)
I came across this poem and fell in love with it. I am sure we can all relate. Happy Poetry Month!
[Step One: Resentment]
Hi, My name is Quentin.
I'm a write-a-holic.
I can't control it,
can't curb the urge to write.
I need help.
I want my life back.
[Step Two: Commitment]
I write poems on fast food napkins,
with toothpicks, using ketchup for ink.
I jot ideas for poems
on my arms and legs. When I run out of space,
I use my shoes.
I make motions
similar to Michael Jackson's moonwalk
when I need to erase.
I make up stories
while making love to my wife.
She left me.
Who needs her?
She was suffocating my creativity.
I await submission replies
like an addict, hands trembling,
head shaking in disbelief.
Not another bout with rejection!
I'm manic depressive.
I'm happy to be here.
No I'm not.
I live for revision.
Instead of sex, I have poems.
I eat feedback.
[Step 3: Contentment]
As a recovering write-a-holic,
admitting my problem
has provided a much needed catharsis.
Joining this nurturing group has
taught me to reconcile my past and move forward.
but are you going to throw away that paper cup?
That's good paper!)
