a good writer makes it work

Updated: Aug 7

when i was 14, a teacher told me: a good writer makes it work

when there were space limits and i was that kid who had the most to say

so today, with the literal 20 minutes i have

to find that kid, look her in the eyes

and ask: why the fuck did you let them shut you up

because okay, now she can summarize and improvise and romanticize

to save the render marathon that is her life

but her opinions don’t smile the same

and she literally has 20 minutes

and she’s said the same thing 10 times and written them none

and she's 21 and what she’s say can limit space

and chances don’t just find her on the street on an impromptu lurk

and a good writer makes it work
