the dragon’s pull
of an imaginator’s trance
tapped the writer’s keyboard dance
that strives to unleash the bird-caged beauty
to brandish her blunted sword against the bored.
Where every direction is a questioned choice
for the search of an unrepeated pattern.
Wherein a pause lurks a library’s maze
where worlds within begin
a new pursuit of the mind’s twist.
It’s a discovery of hidden chapters
while avoiding the kill of hearted darlings.
It’s why a writer’s job is never done
why a writer’s mind tries to fly
to beat the adulting curse
against the days
