why a poet
why not a novelist
even a columnist
itís all in the attention span
I have a word count
problem
my mind works
in meter
I donít have a clue
but this is what I do
why did you choose
modern
format
versus
traditional
I donít know
it chose me
sometimes I look at a piece
and say
not bad for a pea brain
sometimes I look at a piece
and say
girlfriend you rock
sometimes I look at a piece
and say
this is pure shit
I donít have a clue
from whence it comes
or from whence it goes
not my problem
I gotta enough to worry about
without
trying to figure
why I do what I do
I just do
where would you like to go with your poetry
go
go is not an option
I donít plan to go anywhere
I donít plan to do anything
it just happens
there is no great hidden reason
for any of it
no agenda
or timetable
it
is
simply
what my fingers put together
that day
sometimes an idea will knock around
maybe a day a night a year
maybe ten years
before I remember I had something
to say about that
maybe a second
there is no control
I just sit in the car and enjoy the ride
or
sit in the car and wonder where the air bags are
depends
on
todayís subject matter
do you have any regrets regarding
something you may have written in the past
ya probably would have to say
I donít like resorting to foul language
sometimes
it seems
I need the strength in a piece
Iím working on that
most of your work is based on true incidents
is this a trend you will continue
who knows
I donít
I just write
I do want to fiddle with fiction
shit your fiction
and I have am now
but Iím wondering if my imagination
is up to par
do you plan to do any more erotica
sure I do
I loved that
ratings went sky high
but
itís not something I think Iím real
comfortable playing with right now
basically
I donít consider myself a ďpoetĒ
hell I donít even consider myself a ďwriterĒ
itís just that sometimes
there is an issue
a moment in time
something that I just have to
stick to paper
thatís it
nothing fancy
rhyming scares me
I suck at syntax
the Words are what I love
I have an insatiable love for words
stringing them along
matching them up
this one sounds good with that one
geez I donít even Get half the stuff I read out there
but I love it
Iím a huge lover
of the written word
thatís it
thatís all
it
all
comes down
to
the words
thanks ms wootten I wish you all the luck in the
world with your work
luck
whatís luck got to do with it
Iím just your average joe
punching the keyboard
day in
day out
es todo
no mas
calling it like I see it
todayís subject matter




just goofing

Josie, a great write and a wonderful interview. :-) I've noticed that truth sometimes is goofy. If it wasn't we'd all cry all the time.
Much enjoyed,
Janice

We all have our own style, no one can take that away from us.

We are what we write. Yes, sometimes when my inspirations strike me, I can write two or three stories simultaneously at the same time.

A very honest piece of writing Josie!!!!! Love this!!!!!

An honest flow of words. But don't all of us have our own style. Maybe in my case it is no style. If you ask me what is your style, I would have to say no style at all. And that makes me so fortunate to have this freedom. Freedom like you have to explore and expolarate your verbs and adjectives nouns and pronounes for the public. Go on girl and get it. Bill

Not goofy though, the honest truth, it just goes and to dam it up would be a sin. Loved this.
