Let The Chips Fall
Where They Will

Writing poetry
is like taking a
sharp knife and chisel

to a block of 
humble wood,
that represents

your life,
your experiences,
your emotions,
your memories


peeling it back
to resemble 

something of beauty
and substance.

Shavings cast aside,
unimportant, forgotten.


Stark truth.
