We Create and We Erase, Poem (18/365)

1

Erase and create
Create and erase
That’s brilliant
That’s stupid
I wonder how many
Symphonies Beethoven chucked
Before he settled on one
How many melodies he
Hummed and rejected
Create and erase
I wonder how many paintings
Da Vinci repainted over
before settling and making Mona Lisa
I wonder how many words
Shearspear wrote that hit
The waste been before we saw it
We create and erase
We make two steps
We stop and take one step back
We create and we erase
