2013 GUESTBOOK 77: “What If?” (by Bradley Richter)

.

What if

the muse

is not some

ephemeral

external

specter?

 

What if

the muse

is an ancient gland,

vestigial in some,

overactive in others,

secreting mystical

hormones?

 

Does that mean

we control it?

 

No.

 

Not anymore than

we control

our pituitaries and

thyroids.

 

Does that mean

we own it?

 

No.

 

Not anymore than

we own

our bodies.

 

Wrought by

divine hands

or random

star stuff,

 

we are

renting.
