I could have written a novel
or short story collection
or that non-fiction book I was always going to write
about the life and death
of board games
or as my grandkids call them
Did I choose the form or did the form choose me?
I could be hard on myself
for lacking focus, not chaining myself to my chair.
I would like to be a great writer like David Foster Wallace
but I don’t have the constitution for it.
Besides I don’t look good in a bandana.
A Children’s Picture Story Book
that’s what I’ve always wanted to do.
I’m a lover of the short form.
They’re my thing.
Unwrapping them each morning. People unwrapping mine.
There is joy there.
And who is to say one form is superior to another?
