Write What You Know About

Write what you know about

Is a tired old saw

About which people seldom

Stop to think

What sort of knowledge

Do you really need

Before sitting down

To compose a phrase

Is writing

Nothing more

Than a reflexive act

As knowing comes first

Followed by a mechanical

Turn of the wrist

Or is it more

As it sometimes seems

That writing is thinking

Of a certain sort

And only by writing

Do we possess knowledge

Enough to write

About anything at all
