Out with the Old

Let's have some new clichés. – Samuel Goldwyn

The clan of cliché
doesn’t mind the decay
destroying our chances for new things to say

these wasters of ink
apparently shrink
away from the pleasure of getting to think—

your prose can be prime
if you take the time
to try and jot lines that are somewhat sublime

the best thing to do
is read what comes through
and make sure the paper is soaked with just you.

Hello.
I love the ending..."make sure the paper is soaked with just you."
Wise words indeed.

The first line/quote sets the perfect stage.

Happy New Year!
