Loose ends

Treat your muse
like a lover

and I don’t mean
flatter it
or be at your best

creativity is meant
to be ragged
and real

you are married
to that part
of yourself

that flirty elf
that quiet hum
that sudden roar

so don’t expect
it to be perfect

it will get it wrong
and let you down

but you are in it together
so be patient
be yourself

but whatever you do
don’t be lazy

the magic
that stitched you together
early on
eventually frays

so you need to hunt
for the loose ends

and carefully
lovingly
learn
to sew.
