Writer's Blood

Writer's Blood
Karyn Indursky
August 2012


Tell the sun, "Don't shine."
Demand stars not to dance.
Remove vocals from singers.
Decapitate dancers legs.
Smash musician's instruments.
Dry out painter's palettes.
Vanish an author's pen and paper.


But in the end,
you can't stop an artist
from having a soul,
spirits from soaring,
and the blood of art.

Author's Notes/Comments:
