Thinking of Muses

Nursing a muse
is like............
nursing a child
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
She was born
in me,
like a living, breathing person;
and when she grew,
she stomped out
of the palace
i had laid
out for her,
brick by brick.

  4. I love this. no way to keep a muse captive if you feed her, indeed like a child.

  5. Thanks. I felt kinda bored with all the muses i dreamt up because i kept coming to dead ends; i wanted to keep them safe.
