Where Do You Get Your Ideas From?

 

From the space between my ears

from the world behind my eyes

from delving deep inside me

where inspiration lies

 

From memories that haunt me

from things I hear and see

from mystical concoctions

of fact and fantasy

 

From words that come and find me

from dreaming hard and long

from life and books and music

my poems: that's where they're from
