Signs

Signs

A Poem by Annette Pisano Higley

The signs on the locked door say
"Beware-sad when alone",
"Beware-frightened when undisturbed"
"Beware-maudlin when unstimulated",
"Beware-melancholy when isolated",
"Beware- poet lives here."
Approach at your own risk.

We isolate ourselves to write and then become our own prisoners-ahhhhh, poets!

Hmmm...all my signs would be completely opposite of these:

Understand this: Happiest when alone
Know this: Must be undisturbed
Confirmed: Watching Netflix when unstimulated
Best Believe: Ecstatic when isolated
Beware: Writer does not live here alone Applications to enter must include 15,000 word essay on why I should rent you a cage in this zoo.

Haaaaaaa! Great! :)
Let's not forget prose writers. I'm distracted so easy when concentrating. That "groove" in which I create is fragile as egg shells. Here's to quiet writing time, free of disturbances.

Yes you must have your sign too Sam! Thanks for the r&r!
I've seldom willingly sought a silence to "write" within. I guess it's about how we "focus" our intent?

I don't await 2 or 3 AM willfully - those just happen from time-to-time. Kitchen tables have a comfort BUT so do Cafe`tables, bus stops, car seats, planes, trains ...ferrys. Church pews, libraries, restaurants... even bars and sea walls.
