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.

About cognifeeder

My name is Josh. I like to think about things. I also like to write (albeit, “type” might be a more appropriate verb). Sometimes, I can muster these two likes into an enthralling synergy of self-expression. Sometimes not. Cognifeeder was a word I made up in this poem. To me, a “Cognifeeder” is any bit of learned information. A Cognifeeder is a piece of culture, something learned that contributes to one's map of reality. The world is littered with Cognifeeders. Take them lightly. When I’m not blogging, I run Sonata, a digital marketing and SEO agency based in Aledo, Texas.
