Saturday Night (Nobody Move)

Nobody move,
Suspended groove.
A countermove.

One big mob,
May be slob,
Never cold.

Ready.
Needy.
Greedy.

Prism.
Rhythm.
Schism.

Taking over Silence’s frailty,
A perfect irregularity:
Universal musicality.

The end of time may be far away,
We continue to dance anyway,
Until everything falls in decay.

    This attempt looks “forced” as it is mostly a personal challenge to write something that starts with “Nobody Move” (like the book’s title).
    It was also something I did because I didn’t feel like writing at all today: so I took the path of the higher resistance to see what I could come up with.

    I am not happy with the result by itself but I actually feel happy that I could produce something !

    All days expression are not created equal, but as you say, you derived satisfaction from your ability to produce something “on command” even when you didn’t feel particularly inclined to do so. You may be able to work this effort into something that does make you happy, or it may provide the germ for something new. That in itself, is good. 🙂

      According to “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield, forcing oneself to write regularly (and thus overcoming blockers) is one first to becoming “pro”, so maybe that’s what I am aiming at ?
      (Just kidding.)

      I really want to “water my inspiration”, if you allow me to reuse your own words, so I thought I should give it a try.

      I am not sure I will come back to this text. My goal was 1) to write something and 2) it had to start with “nobody move” (it was a way to force myself out of my “comfort zone” however small this one might be).
      🙂
