Creativity on Public WiFi

Can’t:

▪ Laugh maniacally while writing funny poetry
▪ Weep when it’s tragic
▪ Smoke inspirationally
▪ Become incandescently suffused with the Divine
▪ Rock the body when pain gets very bad
▪ Talk to self to help order thought while conducting indexing on a five-inch touch screen
▪ Ask the nice people to turn the music down
▪ Work till I can barely crawl over to my pallet, and collapse upon it

Among us, poets are ill paid. In order to continue her work, this one currently lives in her minivan, on an income of a fraction of our nation’s poverty level. If her work has moved, enabled or uplifted you, your contribution to this effort may be made at: https://www.gofundme.com/kx4xka-are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
