Wild Cotton Still-Life — A Place To Start   1 comment

A place to start

look at you
kenne g
you have taken multi-tasking to a fault

you need to be
more focused
uncomplicated

this is what they tell me
information is good
opinion
music
poetry
photo art
all are good

but, you are inexorable

demurred, I say
I do what I do
because I can

maybe you can’t,
you’re the problem
not me

all things are connected
not an isolated island
I choose to stay linked
open secret places
plant seeds
harvest thoughts
bucket ideas

but, you discard mind droppings

I mix and match
generating energy
to form inspiration

feel the heat
see the stream
it’s all shit

the shit sits
generating food
for tomorrow’s ideas
powering the music
stand up and dance
when I’m not here
there will be a place to start

but, you can add to my pile

(I wrote this poem November 2008 in response to being told that my blog needed to focus on one thing like photography, music, poetry, or art not many things — advice not taken.)
