1) don’t worry about writing
     worry about living

2) the mind and stomach
     work best when empty

3} turn over rocks
     they might turn me over
     in return

4) never say things 
     happen for a reason

5) i run this same path
     every morning/but i’ve
     not been here before

6) treat Monday as if
     she were a guest
     from out-of-town

7) its gossip about me
     mostly true,
     this covey of crow
          murders the silence
          of my run
