How to Get Good at Anything
Manuscripts, like muscles,
need rest to build.
Yet, the breath and the body
only hone when willed.
The breach between beauty
and the ugly, unskilled
is the distance from deprecation
to a glass half filled.
Talents lackluster / talents that glisten =
talents laid down / much repetition.
Those who succeed are those who are smitten
by the love of the language no matter who listens.
