Write Now, by Tricia Marcella Cimera

If it’s wrong, write.

If it’s right, write.

If it’s big and belligerent
and beats down the weak,
write.  Or — it may be you,
you may need
to exorcise that
inside of you.  So write.

If it’s little or helpless,
bleeding as it weeps,
staring at you, write.
You don’t want its blood
on your knowing hands.
Help it.
