0 – The Fool

I suppose you have to be
a little naive to
throw yourself out there
over and over again.

It’s like getting
tattooed:
you forget the pain
until the needles
hit your skin,
and in the itchy,
peeling aftermath
you wonder
why you bother.

But inspiration hits,
or a damn good reason,
or maybe just boredom.

And back out you go.

You don’t need
to know everything
that will happen.

If you did,
you’d never set foot
outside of your
comfort zone.

But if you
have a desire
and a little planning
and a push
out the door
that’s enough.
