Muses’ fling

Muses’ fling

I have always been
the Muses’ fling
Passionate,
beguiled
by beauty—
ever fleeting

I find myself relieved
when I am reunited
with Creativity—
even when
I am reminded:
I have always been
and will always be
the Muses’ fling

Words

You know what I think:
The words that we say
could very well be shot
back to us one day

Do I think about
tomorrow?
Life’s little invoices do
tend to arrive after
the make-or-break
moments—
have passed us by

I need to try to make
each and every word
I can consciously say
feel good both now
and even after
today
