Blistering motivation

It is the minutia
that grinds our creativity
from sumptuous sandstone to
sand,
indistinguishable from
the endless grains that
slip into our shoes
blister our toes
and threaten us.

Question your coffee mug,
demand from it
succor from
the vortex
of runny noses
bills and
the undertow of
rough drafts, that
threaten to sweep you
out to sea.
