when muses go on strike

when muses go on strike
the writer sits and stares
at pages left pristine and white
with pen loose in his grip

when muses go on strike
the writer might despair
and type some words upon the screen
and then delete it all

when muses go on strike
the writer feels alone
he beats his head against the wall
no inspiration there

when my muse goes on strike
I write unrhymed sonnets

I am trying to post at least one item on this blog every day for 100 days. Today is day 97! As I pondered what to write today, I came up with…nothing. I concluded that my muse must have gone on strike, so I decided to write about what happens when muses go on strike. Perhaps I was inspired by a “scab” muse…

One thought on “when muses go on strike

  1. I totally know that feeling… I am writing a poem per e-mail in a regular correspondence and sometimes it’s just so hard to come up with something worth writing down.
