After Reading Steve Richmond by John D Robinson

It was like being handed some
kind of licence,
like now the green light is on
and there is really nothing to
be afraid of, nothing at all,
fuck it, write honestly about
everything be it mundane or
fabulous, go ahead, but to do
let go of ego, self-
awkwardness, values and
beliefs and commitments
of social and moral, political
religious artistic and
intellectual thinking and
write down the fucking
words that nails time to
paper: that’s how he made
me feel.
