I don't love to write
I need to write.
And being a writer is no better than being a waitress
After a double shift and a pocket full of ones
She has perspective

We need to label all people and all things
In order to slap a value on them and
debate about their content

Call me a writer, call me prolific
One day, if I write something that makes them feel good
But the waitress will be short on accolades and compliments
And have no audience
Until she introduces herself as a writer
