I give myself permission
To suck with no limitations,
To fill page after page,
Notebook after notebook,
With insipid drivel and worthless trash.
I am fully allowed to spout clichés
Until the cows come home
And engage in illogical rants worthy
Of any fringe conspiracy buff,
All in search of that rare poetic gem,
For the only way to achieve greatness
Is to be willing to risk complete failure.
