Syntax

Try mixing up the words, she says.
Mixing up words
words mixing.
I can do it in poetry but not prose.
Poetry words go out of order
and still make sense and nonsense,
prose takes words and makes words make order,
prose orders words,
orders words to do what?
Keep writing words
so words keep writing.
Nonsense and sense.
White words write spaces
means nothing to say something.
White words,
blank thoughts,
busy nothingness.
Feels good
feels not me.

Inspired by "Writing Down the Bones" & "Wild Mind" by Natalie Goldberg.

1 part shy intellectual, 1 part edgy chick, 1 part sophisticated woman, 1 part mental patient (after all, sanity is a type of conformity)... what's your mix?
