Blank Trouble

I have a problem with blanks
Fill it in
with personal information
Name that whatever
Answer a quiz
Dig from the farthest
reaches of the losing
parts of my mind
for the right word
to inspire an image
in written rhythms
It’s like a prompter
telling me to
prompt myself
Go prompt yourself, too
Not like I haven’t
seen that one before
missing pieces of the whole
known or mystery
Perform on command
can’t do it anymore
It’s inhibiting
more than spawning
expressionistic creation
Love on the rocks
I just can’t quit
wait a little bit
let the dust settle
Something will nag
at my soul
like this

That was too easy
