I will now consider the creative act

I have been the blank page.
I have been the scrunched-up draft.

I have been one more trip to the dictionary.
I have been the perfect first line.

I have been the winter storm.
I have been the power cut.

I have been the new perfect first line.
I have been the Blue Screen of Death.

I have been the next new perfect first line.
I have been the poem. Finally. Thank God.

I will be the poem spoken and sung.
I will be the poem you remember.

I will be everywhere I have been.
