“What is important is to spread confusion, not eliminate it.”
― Salvador Dalí
Some days I wake in a pea-soup fog,
dream images slipping through my fingers,
thoughts like decapitated chickens.
When I can’t hear myself think,
I get madder than a wet hen, feeling so broke
I can’t afford to pay attention
to will-o’-the wisps of intuition.
If confusion is the first step to knowledge,
I must be a genius.
Today’s dVerse prompt reminds me that in my writing life, confusion often comes before inspiration, that machines should work and people should think, and I don’t need to sweat it.
