The Only Writing Advice I Have to Give

Work to the limits
of resolve
to strike away
the tiny flaws,

focus on fatal flaws,
familiar, resonant,

or magic or mudslides

or death or tender feelings
or the girl on the roof
surveying the street,
contemplative and quiet,

or how it feels
to touch a pencil
to paper, watching shadows
