Dear Artist in Trial,

You’re stuck
in the rut
of the short

You’re stuck
in the rut
of the “I”

You need
to get out
of you
and at least try to go somewhere on a longer road that leads to a new place
with a better view and some semblance of fresh air on old ideas.


There are worlds to be explored
other than your head to be examined


There are things to fight over and things to fight for
other than domestic battles


So grab your pen, sweetie, and let’s find some paper.
