Writing about Writing

Originally published February 24, 2020 (but it’s much older than that).

I was given occasion to roll back through my old LiveJournal today, and I found this, written nearly ten years ago, which I’m sure will feel like a comfortable old shirt for a lot of friends.
😆😁😄

I created you
birthed you from my mind
yet you are unfinished
a golem of electrons
insubstantial
but wilful
I push and I shove
you are obstinate and will not be moved
flickering on the screen
before me
incomplete
irresolved.

WRITE, DAMN YOU.
