Incantation for Weary Writers

Set those words free from their sentence of doubt
Squeeze them and toss them and feel them ooze out

Set those words free from the trapdoors of right
See them trail mud down the hall of polite

Set those words free from their handcuffs and chains
Hear how they hiss at your narrow refrains

Set those words free, let them fall over edges
and topple and dive from those tight upright ledges

Set those words free from their sentence of doubt
Admit that you’re beat – Let them out! Let them out!
