Recipe For Inspiration

Take a box.
An ordinary box.

Take a shard of granite
or maybe chert
and place it inside

along with a priests mitre,
some red candle wax,
a fine braided quirt
and the score of Beethoven’s Eroica.

Now close the box
And put it in the hall by the stairs.

In a week it will be a poem–
or maybe not.
You have to decide.

  2. Oh the magical sources of inspiration–anywhere and anything, is my motto. Thanks for putting it in a nutshell, or should that be a shoebox?
