  and 
        who are you
                my muse?

    because i
    want to stay
    on this
    particular
    bender
    forever
this must last forever
       & i plan never to die

  1. I think I am maybe particularly invested here because I know the method and the backstory.

    "because i
    want to stay
    on this
    particular
    bender
    forever"

    I hear that, sister.

  2. what's the back story? "this is [you] taking risks and" what else?
    there's a sort of reserved desperation to this poem, i dig it.

  3. & whining?
    & writing self-indulgently?
    back story = a wine-soaked conversation with cdg wherein i expressed fear and ah, shyness maybe, in my writing, and a dose of intimidation too, and she wisely, because she is very wise, advised me to continue to take risks.
