As In Razor

My dissertation chairperson used to say,
“Read, read, read,”
Which really helped
Me write all those pages
Of scholarly haute.

Lately, staleness feels like
It’s creeping into my writing,
So I dusted off her advice to
Kickstart my desire and
Hopefully get better.

I’ve stumbled upon
Giovanni and Finney,
Two strong voices
Teaching me a great deal
Of what I’ve missed in life.

I’ve discovered anthologies
Where a ton of great writing
Is crammed into one spot.
This time around, a history
Of Rock-n-Roll.

Getting back into the stacks
Has jacked my energy level again
And whether it pays off on paper,
Time will tell.
Thanks, Dr. Frazer.
