NaPoWriMo 2020 #10 [with video]

My Writing Routine

Nowadays I write with exacerbation
trying to goad an apocalypse to some fruition.
It happens around 2am
or 12:30
or 4am
whatever the time
it has to be dark and I must be alone.

I make the coffee and read some Don Delillo
or Wanda Coleman
just a few pages
to get my brain horned up for words.

I smoke many cigarettes
I drink many coffees
I don’t masturbate
or think of myself as a martyr
I use the bathroom
I think of things in my day
and how they relate to
everything else in the world
I rarely eat

Sometimes there is bad music
playing in my head.
Sometimes it’s Nu Metal
from the early 2000s.
This is bad for business.
I listen to good music
or the words don’t come.

I swaddle myself in cocoons of creation.
I am a shimmering wizard
throwing ideas against walls
and making them stick.

Before I know it a poem appears.

I read back over what I wrote
and live forever in my hollow magicks.

      1. Nice! Must admit that in retrospect that seemed like a daft question. Well, you’ve done a great job of putting it all together. Kudos once again. Also, nice update on the profile photo! Putting a face to the name. It’s all very poetically professional; very inspiring.

  1. Hey Mr. Woldman, I recently found your page and I love it. As an aspiring writer (I found your page when you liked one of my recent blogs) I really admire your writing style, and I must say you do a great job of reading your poetry. I relate to your writing process a lot, especially the music part. Hope to see more videos like this in the future ๐Ÿ™‚
