write something worthwhile

if a skill is comparable
to a muscle, then what would
be the prescribed medication
for a mentally disembodied
limb that refuses to come up
with any decent metaphors?
instead, I am stuck with
this self-referential mediocrity,
in which I try to rationalize
this literary obstruction
this poetic tragedy

    Ah…most poets just call it a ‘writer’s block’ or ‘a muse on vacation’. Have a wonderful new year!
