I don't want to be anybody's muse
or inspiration for anyone.
I want to keep that source of creativity
all for me. I'm selfish like that I guess.
Those who choose to use me for their creative process,
Stop stealing my shit.
I've had to disappear behind the barriers and shutters
where I cannot be found
where i sit
We all have enough of our own stories to tell.
You tell your stories
and I will tell mine.
They might be the same, or not.
But mine belong to me.
I have been here many times before.
My needs become fewer
as I fill my golden bowl
to the brim.
