the writer can’t write, and the captain is crazy

the writer
strokes
the keys
as if
to arouse
the written
word:

“i can’t
write anything.
i feel
nothing
and
no words
come out.”

life,
death,
and love
are blocked
at
the harbor.

the ship
of fear
is docked
at
the bay

but

the captain
still has his
hands on the
wheel.
