Keep it alive

What do you see # 47- 14 September’20

As I sat at my workbench
I told myself I would paint myself into history
Like Di Vinci, Van Gogh, Monet
Only my mind is as blank as the page I looked at
Where did they get their inspiration from?
The five and dime, the local minute mart?
If only
I don’t remember painting the strange circles
Other worlds, my notepad splashed with paint
As if a five-year-old sat in my place
Fred, my friendly skull
Told me to pursue a different career
I thought this a good idea, closing my notepad
The next time I look at a blank page
I will fill it with wonderful words
Produce the next best seller
Ten weeks at number one I told myself
Hoping that one day, what I say
will be so…
