The plays and sketches I wrote didn't require much thought

more like knee-jerk writing.
but other times, the All-Silent plays,
I didn’t know how it was gonna end
as I was writing them,
might have to get up from my desk
and go to the kitchen,
think about it, How’s it gonna end?
still didn’t know,
but then writing more,
it came to me.
Negative Capability, by Keats.

something totally unrelated,
I read Jujitsu for Christ
as a young woman
and he says near the end,
Look at me, dad, I’m a writer!
stuck with me.

Annie Dillard would say that too, Sheri.

Keats didn’t want to meet up with the others they called Romantics, thought he was better than them, and he was.

one of the only reasons I got my kids vaccinated as babies,
if there were only medicine then.
