Before you start your own rat poem
it is essential that you have no idea
what to do.
If you do,
then keep your mind in neutral
by concentrating on the word
You know how they always say you’ve got to think before you leap?
Take three breaths to settle into poemland and say the following with fortissimo!!!
fuck fuck fuck
ah no fuck fuck fuck
ugh ugh ugh
Now do it again but with meaninglessness passion. And then again for good luck. Then begin writing or recording the extravagance of your poem as it oozes and or explodes out into your existence. When done or not, burn the words or erase the file, with rat blessings on your lips. You too will be safe in the future. If you want, you can then get out the hidden copy... just in case you want to work on it some more. May the rat be with you.
