A Left-Brain Deal

Writing
is a left-brain
deal
Maybe
Shaping the chatter
like clay
into
a sculpture
Can it be a song too?
Both?
Thawed music?

It’s a left-brain deal,
though
The right brain
knows
what words are
but doesn’t use them,
I don’t think
The left brain shouts
“I am!”
and wants
to be read.

That’s why it squeezes
the clay
and cares about
the shape
The right brain
just is
The left brain
feels joy
when it’s recognized
The right brain is joy

So–
they work together
In mysterious ways.
