Thank You For Your Wonderful Apple

I suppose everything
        we learn
                is by example
for instance
        I’ve been staring
                at the wall
since I said
        this sentence
                and still
don’t have a thing
        to say. Excuses,
                excuses.
Easy. You take
        the first thought
                that pops
into your head,
        and call it
                what you will.
Then, take a dollop
        of some good
                old fashioned
craft, start
        putting your name
                out there
and hopefully
        something will stick.
                Not that I am
one for self
        promotion or
                anything, but
I hear that’s how
        you get ahead
                in these matters.
You see that
        spaghetti splayed
                all over the wall?
I’m the one who made the plate.
