12 Bottles of Inspiration — The Perfect Writer’s Kit for solving Writer’s Block

John called it

his “writing kit”

A liquor bar on wheels

designed to roll anywhere

he wrote good poems

He claimed

he drank 10 shot glasses

of different types, flavors

and colors

to jump-start a steady stream of

poems

He starts with whiskey, vodka

wine, brandy then the liquid

inspiration flows

non-stop as he listens to

Paul Williams’s

sad love songs —

“I Won’t Last a Day Without You”

“An Old Fashioned Love Song”

“Rainy Days and Mondays”

“You & Me Against The World” —

I watch as 1, 2, 8, 10 and more

poems flow

non-stop

John, I ask him

can I talk you out of some of that

liquid inspiration

from them there colored bottles?

I’ve had a dry spell

and it will help my

writers’s block

Will you loan me

your writer’s kit

for the weekend ?

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
