Would you?

If I singled you out by name and gave you a subject to write about, could you, would you do it?

If at first you don't succeed....skydiving is not for you ....
If you don't pay your exorcist .... do you get repossessed?
I shall always decide not to decide, unless of course I decide to change my mind.

I used to do this back in school (I was a creative writing student at Cincinnati's School for Creative and Performing Arts many years ago). So I'm a little rusty, but yes, I think I could do it. Bring it on.

Ah but isn't that the point of the exercise to see if you're a good enough poet to write about something (and make it interesting) that you haven't the slightest bit of interest in?

My lines are punctuated
By brown-gray marks
Where wood has scraped paper.

But the words keep coming;
They will not stop for my convenience.
And even if they would,
Who knows if
I could start them flowing again?
So I glance across the room
To the sharpener
Wistfully,
And think,
Not for the first time:
Not yet.

Nice think it could be honed even further (pardon the pun) in a few places but it leads to a fabulous ending (envious!) very well done

Why thank you. I think, in hindsight, you threw me kind of a softball. Others got things like Hadrian's Wall. Giving me a pencil for a subject let me just write about writing.
