I Wear Many Hats

In Thoughts on Writing on June 28, 2012 at 8:21 pm

I wear the hat of a writer on weekday mornings,

The hat of a struggling writer on weekday afternoons.

I wear the hat of a “writer” when people ask me what I do for work,

The hat of a Writer to people who call themselves that too.

I wear the hat of a poet when I read writing I think is simple,

The hat of a novelist whenever I actually read a poem.

I wear the hat of a child when I talk to someone with a real job,

The hat of a creator when others say they had the same dream.

I wear a writing hat when I sit down to write,

It’s me, holding my head, putting it to work.
