Robert Plant should not wear those too-small shirtsBut that’s pastSpeaking of what shouldn’t be:I’m secretly lazy — I LOOK hard workingBut I procrastinate out of fear.I need to get out of the fear room By just putting one foot out into the possible hallwayAnd that would mean just working more consistently inThe morning — which I hate. Working means writingAnd right now writing certain things scares me. So I’m avoiding byDoing other things like writing this poem right now Instead of working on a “project” — a big “project” Aka a big story. A big novel. A big something.
