ANYTHING BUT
(On Not Being a Muse)

I will write it
And if you like
I will sing it

I will arrange it, strum it
Pick it, drum it

I will edit it, compress it,
Finesse it, billboard it

I will design it, knit it,
Dye it, fit it

I will brushstroke it, pleat it
Murmur philosophy beneath it

Gladly I will do it all
Anything but be
Static while you are active
Anything but be
The one from whom you draw
What you make your own.
