"Autonomic As Breathing" (by Joe DiMino)

I take-up my pen…
Autonomic as breathing;
A god in control
Or by devil possessed,
Create and stricken—
Bless with miracles
Or curse;
Heal and raise the dead—
Send a crooked mortal
Eternally to dread—

It is my gift for writing;
Or curse, gardens through cemeteries
By verse—
Saint with ghoul
Each has a realm
Where they rule—
But all have dominion
Over me…
For a writer from writing
Is never free….
