Page Infection

As I write, as I type,
these words, these thoughts

(Whether on the page
or in electric memory)

Am I setting them free?
Or am I imprisoning them?

Language and ideas are like a virus:
Once you read them, you’re infected.

Perhaps we’re lucky that most ideas die
long before they ever reach the page



  1. lovely reflection...
    we write to reflect, impress, or grow...

  2. There are some very interesting concepts there to ponder.

  3. nice. i wrote on writing today as well...i was once told that 90% of what we write is junk...but we have to go through it to get to the write away!


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
