Letter to My Computer, dated 9-16-2010

dedicated to Courtney and all others who know the agony of staring down a blank "page" to wrestle the words from within

Dear Machine,

I will face you. 
I will stare you down. 
You will not get the best of me. 

I always win staring wars. 

You are not my nemisis. 
That demon lives within. 

You are not my obstacle. 
I create that on a whim.

You are not my focus.
I live because I write.

You have not that power.
I now will end this fight.

I always win staring wars.
I always win staring wars.
I always win---

Yours Faithfully,
